Sports Ambassador Scheme
Our Sports Ambassador Scheme provides LSBU students and individuals within the local community, the opportunity to volunteer or be employed by the University to deliver sports coaching, fitness and mentoring sessions across London.
By joining the Sports Ambassador Scheme you could help schools meet the national activity level guidelines by supporting their in-house and extracurricular activities, and offer new and exciting activities within the local community.
Engaging in sports and coaching opportunities while in higher education can also provide you with the skills employers are seeking. Throughout the Scheme you will develop team work, leadership and organisational skills.
The scheme is open to all, whatever your level of experience. After interview you will be selected to join in one of the following roles:
|Volunteer||Voluntary Ambassadors||Support and shadow|
|Activator||Paid Ambassadors||Support and supervise|
|Level 1||Paid Level 1 Qualified coaches||Support, supervise and deliver fun sessions|
|Level 2||Paid Level 2 Qualified coaches||Deliver developmental coaching sessions|
|Rep||Represent the Sports Ambassadors at monthly meetings|
Engagement in sport provides a good career return on investment of around £4264 and £5616 per annum ... compared to those that did not engage in sport.
