Leadership & Volunteering Academy

Leadership & Volunteering Academy

The Active Rutland Leadership & Volunteering Academy aims to encourage young people in Rutland to actively volunteer within our schools and the local community. We support our young leaders by providing them with the appropriate training and opportunities to develop their leadership skills and experiences.

Individuals within the Academy will work with other leaders from across Rutland, there is also an opportunity for our leaders to make new friends, and to learn from and share ideas with one another.

The Leadership & Volunteering Academy is currently open to Primary (Yr 5/6), Secondary and Post 16 schools in the Rutland area.

The Leadership & Volunteering Pathway

The Leadership Academy Pyramid.

This pyramid illustrates the pathway that ambassadors can take to become part of the LRS ELITE Sports Leadership Academy; an Academy that aims to identify and bring together the most talented and committed young leaders across the county to develop, enhance and refine their skills by working alongside other young people and sports professionals.

Selected young leaders are able to develop through accessing support and training related to coaching, officiating and event volunteering. They will also be the workforce for the School Games Championships.

Applications for the LRS ELITE Sports Leadership Academy for 2021/22 will be open early next year.
