- SECONDARY SCHOOLS
Chance to Shine have produced an exciting set of new online resources called ‘Be the Spark’. This is aimed at girls only between the age of 11 and 16. The programmes use cricket as a vehicle to develop confident, knowledgeable young leaders. The program seeks to work on the Chance to Shine values of inspiring, ambitious, inclusive, passionate, and fun.
- cultivate transferable leadership skills.
- promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
- develop their skills within their own school, community, or club setting.
The course has been designed in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust, and is aligned to connect to the Youth Sport Trust’s ‘Leadership Framework’
The programme has been developed into 2 separate courses. Each of the courses include:
5 x module presentations (approx. 30-45 minutes each)
5 x takeaway tasks (1 per module) for students to complete between modules.
A final ‘Century Maker’ challenge, in the form of a presentation which students must complete to gain their course certificate.
