Here at North West Leicestershire School Sport Partnership we strive to offer develop key leadership skills for all students within our partnership through quality training, events and opportunities.

Anybody who is involved in leadership and volunteering within North West Leicestershire School Sport Partnership falls under the umbrella of the Leadership Academy. The Leadership Academy is organised and structured to maximise the great potential that our leaders possess, and help to drive sport forward with our partnership.


The Ambassador programme will provide exceptional leaders with an opportunity to develop themselves and sport in their school and community.

The Ambassador programme is available to both primary and secondary schools, and in turn each will have different roles and responsibilities.

Ambassadors will be expected to:

  • Be the youth voice for PE and School Sport in their school and community
  • Promote the positive Values of Sport
  • Be a role model and champion for PE and School Sport
  • Increase participation opportunities and healthy lifestyles for everyone

Selected Ambassadors will be able to develop their CV by accessing support and training related to leading, officiating and event volunteering. They will also act as role models and ambassadors in their own schools/colleges.
