Sports Leaders UK 2012 Legacy Commitment

LFE progression partners Sports Leaders UK hosted a 2012 Legacy commitment event this month at The House of Lords.

A fundamental part of Sports Leaders remit is to use the medium of sport to deliver awards and qualifications while fostering leadership skills.

In delivering to this agenda Sports Leaders are aiding in the production of people with essential skills in leadership, communication, organisation and motivation.

In an extension of this work Sports Leaders has now committed to a Legacy pledge to promote volunteer deployment and employment links and commit towards government health targets to get more people active as a ‘Change4Life’ partner.

The pledge is as follows:

  • Train 500,000 leaders who will contribute 1.25M hours as a volunteer
  • Educate 100,000 leaders in Olympic and paralympic values
  • Get 500,000 more active people

The event at the House of Lords which aimed to raise the profile of this pledge was supported by a number of Peers and Politicians including, Andy Reed MP, Lord Addington and the host of the event Lord Selsdon.

Other names of note in attendance were Katharine Merry (ex 400m world number one and Olympic Bronze medallist) and Arlene Phillips (ex Strictly Come Dancing judge) who was lending her support to a further planned extension of the SportsLeaders programme “Dance Leaders”.

Also supporting the event was LFE’s Project Manager Dan Jolley, who was keen to commend Sports Leaders UK’s latest venture. He said:

“The progression partnership between LFE and SportsLeaders is now well established and this has served to raise our enthusiasm in the partnership even further.”

“We are very excited to know that some of the Apprentices who have come through the ASE programme with LFE will now move on to be part of a pledge that will deliver benefits on such a huge scale.”
