LEAP Active leapt into the Day Certificate
LEAP Active (Primary Care Trust) now within the Health Promotions Services actively deliver ‘Street Games’ across the county. As part of this scheme, volunteer’s parents and helpers are trained and provided with a tool kit to continue delivery.
Following many months of discussion with LEAP Active around how the Day Certificate could be used as a basic training award for the ‘Street Games’ scheme ,LEAP felt that it would be the ideal award to be included in the ‘Street Games’ Tool Kit.
Therefore agreed that on the launch of the award arrangements would be made to run a course with LEAP.
‘Volunteers are trained in Leadership to develop ‘Street Games’ activities….’
Over two evening sessions, volunteers were given the opportunity to develop their skills in planning and delivering simple sport and recreational activities which they would then be able to use with children and young people.
The award was delivered in Illogen, with attendees coming from around the Truro, Redruth, and Camborne and Pool areas. Volunteers again covered areas in communicating, planning and delivering, and safety awareness.
Following this training volunteers were given training in first aid and child protection.
