The Leader In Training programme was brand new for 2020 and ideal for young people aged 15-16, who are looking to develop the skills and experience to be successful as they move into leadership roles at home, school, or the community. It uses Fairthorne Manor’s best loved activities to develop and inspire young people in key leadership skills, developing teamwork, group dynamics, conflict resolution and communication.
Sadly, due to COVID-19 the programme was very limited in 2020 but we are continuing plans to reintroduce it for summer 2021 so watch this space!
What will they do?
The week will begin with team building and self-discovery exercises, taking advantage of the huge range of activities Fairthorne Manor has to offer, enabling young people to recognise their true potential. They will receive training in practical skills such as CPR and it is expected that all those who complete the programme will gain the Young Leader Award from Sports Leaders. Participants will be supported in developing awareness around child protection and safeguarding and finally get the chance to put the newly learnt skills into practice.
