The Dorset Virtual Leadership Academy consists of a selection of pre-recorded workshops covering a variety of topics to provide training to young people on their leadership journey. The leadership academy offers a wide range of training to primary, middle, secondary and special schools and demonstrates the importance of developing young people to become the workforce of the future.
The mission is to create a movement across schools unifying young leaders who have a passion to champion sport, physical activity and play. Through a range of leadership experiences, young people can acquire skills and learn behaviours, which not only develop them as individuals but as drivers of change for others.
The Virtual Leadership Academy will run alongside the face-to-face Dorset Leadership Academy providing additional content for schools to access. The workshops provide flexibility in the way leadership training is delivered.
The workshops have been created for teachers to use with groups of students in the following strands – Young Leaders, Young Ambassadors, Young Coaches, Sports Reporters and Wellbeing Mentors to create the next generation of leaders, officials, coaches and role models.
The workshops have been created by a diverse group of sports professionals including athlete mentors such as Kate Grey and Aaron Phipps, along with PE teacher, coaches and the School Games team.
We hope you enjoy using the workshops and we look forward to seeing you at the next Dorset Leadership Academy event.
