The PlayMaker Award from SportsLeader UK is a great introduction into leadership for learners aged nine and over. The award aims to help learners develop leadership skills such as organisation, communication and teamwork, as well as helping to develop confidence and self-esteem.
Age: Nine and over
Tutored hours: Six
The PlayMaker Award focuses on specific skills such as communicating, the organisation of people and equipment, and the use of space. The award breaks leadership down into its constituent parts and teaches these topics through a practical, activity based, holistic approach. This means the PlayMakers ‘learn by doing’ and, by the end of the course, will have the skills to set up simple games and/or activities that they are familiar with and they will feel confident when assisting leading a small group of peers or younger children under direct supervision.
