Our Existing Partners
Sports Leadership Partner
Sports Leaders UK
Since it was founded in 1982, Sports Leaders UK have typically delivered awards and qualifications through formal curriculum - schools, colleges and universities - but the urgent need for the skills and opportunities the courses deliver is in the community, not just in the classroom.
Creation of the Sports Leaders UK Foundation recognised this need to reach out into the community and deliver a powerful contribution to the process of social inclusion. A commitment to community volunteering is an integral part of all Sports Leaders UK awards and qualifications, making sports leadership a lifetime commitment for many.
