Active Leaders


Activate’s Step into Leadership Awards are ideal for 12+ year olds who have an interest in sport or activity instruction and would like a positive experience to help them on their way.

The Step into Leadership Awards give young people first-hand experience of coaching and leadership skills through a combination of theory exercises and practical on-course experiences. As part of the awards, Leaders will complete workbooks and deliver a variety of coaching sessions, starting with warm-ups and building up to eventually leading their own planned sessions, all with the help of their on-site mentor.

There are 2 stages to the Activate Leaders Award, Level 1 and Level 2, each award typically takes 5-days to complete however it is possible to complete on a 3-day course with the right attitude and commitment! Level 1 is great for a young person's first steps in to leadership and after completing their Level 2 award, Leaders are then ready to move on to the Active Leaders Award.

The Modules covered in each Award are listed below.
