Developing Leadership through Sport and the Outdoors
The leadership and management of sport and physical activity has never been more important. With growing levels of inactivity and the impact of COVID-19 on activity behaviours, the ability to develop and lead effective interventions is crucial. This module considers how leadership is a critical element to developing projects and working in teams. Through working in the outdoors, you will reflect on and understand your own leadership skills and how they are transferable to a real-life project situation. The module will also focus the issues facing sport, physical activity and outdoor education and provide you with the opportunity to develop a researched intervention to tackle a specific issue. You will work in collaboration with peers to develop intervention ideas and to test your leadership skills in a range of engaging team-based challenges and activities.
