SheerSKILL is a sports leadership & personal development programme that offers a range of accredited sports coaching courses, skill based practical sessions, good relations awareness workshops as well as work experience opportunities in the community with professional coaches. SheerSKILL has been running for 10 years capturing the values of modern youth work and empowering learners to achieve their goals through the opportunities provided.
The SheerSKILL programme engages the young people in learning opportunities that includes activities & qualifications in a range of sports, such as Dodgeball, Cricket, Futsal, Disability Inclusion, Rugby & Heart Start. The activities & qualifications are supported through Sport Leaders qualifications, which guide the young people through the leadership role. The programme not only provides local schools, sports clubs & community organisation with new energetic leaders but it is also a fantastic stepping stone for many young people, as the programme enhances their opportunities to gain access to higher and further education as well as employment.
“It was great to interact with new people from different areas and backgrounds. The celebration event allowed me to put my new coaching skills into practice and I’m looking forward to using these new skills and qualifications at my local club! I’d definitely recommend anyone taking part on the programme as its free, doesn’t take up too much time and offers so much for your CV.”
