Choose To Lead - Nithsdale Pilot Project

The Choose to Lead Programme offers participation in a variety of quality awards including courses from Sports Leaders UK, Saltire Award and National Governing Bodies for sport.

We are confident the programme will enhance the experiences of Young Leaders in both school and community settings.  The pilot programme in Nithsdale has been supported with funding support from the Holywood Trust.

Whilst working towards the award levels, candidates will gain valuable experiences of practical leadership and benefit from links with local clubs and opportunities in the wider community.

Nithsdale Active School and Community Sport Officers will support every young person who registers to be part of the Choose to Lead Programme to take full advantage of the opportunities available to them.  These opportunities will enhance their development as Young Leaders whilst helping them develop skills in delivering high quality activities.

The Choose to Lead Programme is open to those aged from 12 years up to and including the age of 25 years.   Although underpinned by leadership in sport, the awards can be utilised by young people volunteering in clubs or facility settings.
