Junior Leader Programme

The Role

Junior Leaders assist Activity Leaders and Team Leaders to plan and deliver the Summer Scheme 2017.  This is an exciting opportunity for 15 - 17 year olds to learn new skills and contribute to the success of the Scheme they may have participated in for many years. This could prove to be the first step towards a very successful coaching / mentoring career.

The typical working day is 9.00am – 5.00pm and it is anticipated that Junior Leaders will be recruited for a full week(s).

Training will be provided before the Scheme begins and it is hoped that additional accredited opportunities will be available throughout the Scheme to gain coaching / mentoring qualifications.

The Criteria
  • Applicants must be at least 15 years old on 3 July 2017
  • Applicants must be available to attend training sessions. This year there are two courses available:
