Enabling all children to develop leadership fundamentals to reach their full potential
Create Development is working in partnership with the London Youth Games to develop the exciting new duel branded programme GamesForceGo! real leaders. This is a new volunteering and leadership award centered around primary school children in Year 5 and 6. The programme aims to transform junior leadership and character development across whole primary schools, driving pupil voice and whole school development through the power of competitive sport. Healthy and appropriate competitive sporting events will be used to engage and enthuse primary pupils in leadership, thereby developing skills that they will carry with them for life.
Currently, primary schools in London are unable to develop these key abilities in pupils; the capacity and skills to deliver intra school competition, quality opportunities to engage primary pupils in leadership and an understanding of healthy, appropriate competition are all missing. GamesForceGo! real leaders aims to ensure that young leaders are equipped to deliver competitive opportunities to their peers, with more Year 5 and 6 Londoners achieving their full potential through leadership and competitive sport. Pupils will receive the best opportunities to develop their skillsets through the best leadership programme and resources available, with teachers then equipped to take it across the whole school.
GamesForceGO! real leaders:
- supports both teachers and pupils in Year 5 and 6 to understand what great leadership looks, sounds and feels like.
- gives teachers the tools to support the development of leadership fundamentals in pupils.
- provides pupils with opportunities to lead and deliver small events and competitions.
- empowers teachers and pupils to deliver high quality, healthy competition through a focus on Personal Best.
- provides a template programme, resources and a menu of ideas to include, challenge and support young leaders in and through appropriate roles.
