In Leeds North West we are very proud of our sports leaders. Individuals apply or are selected to receive training and become part of the PE and sport workforce for their own school and the school sport partnership. Leadership develops important life skills that support all career paths such as communication, organisation, team building and ensuring fair play. Once trained students go on to officiate and coach sessions and competitions leading children younger than them. Some students have gone on to sports & PE related degrees and careers. Many continue to officiate and coach in their communities.
