Our Sports Ambassador Scheme provides LSBU students and individuals the opportunity to volunteer or be employed by the University to deliver sports coaching, fitness and mentoring sessions across London and internationally.
The Sports Ambassador Scheme is available for any LSBU students, regardless of experience. Through your commitment to the Sports Ambassador Scheme you will enhance your personal and professional development through volunteering, both locally and internationally, paid coaching work and training and development opportunities.
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 network with local community organisations who deliver meaningful projects for Southwark’s community.
Engaging in sports and coaching opportunities while in higher education can also provide you with the skills employers are seeking.
Student’s Confidence in being employed within six-months was highest for students who participated in both sport and gym, as well as those who were more active.
