Newcastle Town FC have come together with Sports Leaders Qualifications to offer a unique opportunity for our young people aged 12-16 to gain a Level 1 Sports Leaders qualification while receiving high-level UEFA ‘B’ football coaching. 
Young people undertaking the Level 1 Sports Leaders qualification will learn and demonstrate important life skills such as effective communication and organisation whilst learning to lead basic physical activities to younger people, their peers, older generations and within the community.

This is a recognised qualification which covers two units:

Unit 1 – Establishing leadership skills.
Unit 2 – Plan, assist in leading and review sport/physical activities.

Students will be required to bring their football kit to take part in the activities during the course. Students will be given all the classroom resources in order to achieve the course.

The course is run from Roe Lane Playing Fields in Clayton, using the on site classroom and 20 acre of football facility including our state of the art 3G pitch.
