by Sports Leaders UK,

Posted on the 05/02/2019

Over 2000 young people across the Republic of Ireland will be starting the new year with a spring in their step with the news that Sport Ireland have funded 101 SLQ Sports Leadership courses across 22 Local Sports Partnerships.

Due to run across 2019, the courses will be run both in-school and in community settings. They will allow learners to benefit not only from the valuable leadership skills learnt on the courses, but also gain essential employability skills such as confidence, self-belief, self-management, teamwork and problem solving.

Alan Brierley, SLQ ROI Partnership Manager said “The impact we have had in the Republic of Ireland has been brilliant and I am incredibly proud about this news. This will be our fourth year of partnership with Sport Ireland and takes the number of Local Sports Partnership we are working with to 29."

"To date approximately 5200 learners have completed a qualification or award since September 2015. This means that end of 2019, we will have helped over 7000 learners on their #LearnerJourney."

"We can’t wait to get started.”
