Junior Sports Leaders Award (JSLA)

The young people attending on the Face 2 Face Connections Project required physical recreation and CYPA needed this to be in the form of accredited learning. Following some research planning and negotiation, it was agreed that with support from Southwark Community Games. Physical Education sessions would take place twice weekly. The sessions would take place at the Damilola Taylor Centre.
It was agreed that the local Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) would also have some of their young people participate in sessions. The sessions proved to be very enjoyable for all the young people who took part.

The sessions were delivered by Southwark Community Games coaches Pablo Blackwood and Sayce Holmes-Lewis. The course syllabus also included Emergency First Aid and an opportunity for young people to put what they had learned into practice. The Level 1 Award in Sports Leadership is a nationally recognised qualification that enables successful candidates to lead small groups in simple sport and recreational activities whilst under the direct supervision of their tutor.
