Leadership – Apprenticeship – Career in sport

Its that simple and you can do it all with Active Fusion!

What is the Elite Leadership Academy?

Our Elite Leadership Academy is designed to engage and develop employability skills amongst young people with an interest in sport. We have partnered with Club Doncaster Foundation to provide a year long programme designed to help improve employability, confidence and skills amongst enthusiastic young people.

The Academy is FREE and all leaders will have the opportunity to participate in the following opportunities:

  • Workshops focused on Leadership, Running an event and First Aid
  • Careers Evening (sports opportunities/following school)
  • Work experience, opportunities to volunteer on big events (Doncaster 10K, Match Days at Doncaster Rovers, Family Festival in June).
  • Awards evening recognising the impact young leader have had throughout the year
  • Social event planned by the leaders attending.

All workshops and training events will be run during the evenings, weekends and school holidays so will not interfere with education time. The volunteering opportunities will vary from month to month and will include School Games events. If you school is a host for the events it would easily accessible for your students.

Each leader will be given a log book to track hours and there will be three tiers of volunteer hours to meet (Gold, Silver and Bronze). If these hours are met there will be different rewards and opportunity which leaders can participate in. If students complete the required number of volunteer hours they could be entitled to:

  • A Level One Coaching Qualification
  • An Activator Course
  • Matchday experiences at Club Doncaster
  • Nominated for ‘Volunteer of the Year Award’
