CHANGING LIVES OF YOUNG PEOPLE THROUGH SPORT
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
— Nelson Mandela
CMS Leadership Academy main role will be providing opportunities for youth who are not be in employment, education or training with a meaningful progression to become a sports coach. We will provide an opportunity, a platform for young people to achieving their potential. Using sport as the driver we aim to improve the skill levels of the young people on our program, building their confidence, improving their social well being. The skills they will learn through sports coaching will provide the necessary skills for the young people allowing them to find sustainable employment.
The CMS Leadership Academy will work closely with youth organisations, sports clubs, local authorities and other community groups who would idnetify young people who would benefit from our modules which we can deliver. Our role will be to build the bridges to gain the confidence of the young people enabling them to become not only great coaches but well rounded individuals through specific training..
Not only will the young people work alongside the professional coaches but they will also be involved in the delivery of programs at after-school clubs, summer programmes, holiday camps, birthday parties and also into care homes for vulnerable adults.
There will also be opportunity for young people to work with Coach My Sport and the 'On the Road' program further down the line.
Our tutors will deliver specific modules as required by by the organisations we will be working with
As part of our Leadership Academy program the MSL Certification will be offered to all participants plus we will be offering additional Education Through CashBack (ETC) Modules where required and appropriate.
Education Through CashBack (ETC) is a national Scottish Sports Futures programme; developed in partnership with Scottish Sports Futures, that aims to enhance sports coaches, youth workers and volunteers understanding of personal development through sport.
Six of the ETC modules are now SCQF accredited at levels 4 (Communication) and 5 (Working with Young People, Benefits of Physical Activity, Human Connection, Goal Setting and Conflict Resolution)
