The Evolution of RGS Worcester’s Sports Leadership Programme
It is wonderful to see how the Sports Leadership programme at RGS Worcester is evolving and providing opportunities for students to gain recognised qualifications. With the introduction of the Sports Leadership Level 3 Award during enrichment at Sixth Form, students can gain 16 UCAS points and the Community Sports Leadership Award, a nationally recognised qualification that enables pupils to lead unsupervised groups of people in Sport and recreational activities.
On Monday 13 November, Lower and Upper Sixth Academic PE students put theory into action with a practical outreach session with St George’s Catholic Primary School. The next element of the A Level PE Syllabus focuses on leadership, stages of learning and guidance. The RGS students gained first-hand experience in leading a group of local primary school pupils in a multi-skills workshop. Afterwards, students had the opportunity to reflect on their leadership skills and in particular, the characteristics of an effective leader and the types of leadership styles used.
The focus on leadership within the curriculum and the subsequent practical application with younger pupils not only enriches the learning experience for the RGS students but also provides invaluable exposure to real-world teaching and leadership scenarios. Reflecting on their leadership skills and understanding the nuances of effective leadership styles will benefit their personal and professional growth.
If you have a story to share about Sports Leadership in action outside of School from alumni or a current student, we would really like to hear about it. Please do share by contacting me via email: email@example.com
