Your Time is an inspirational programme designed to encourage girls in schools to participate in competitive sport and sports leadership opportunities.
We know we need more girls in sport.
Your Time is a learning programme designed to empower girls with the confidence to become leaders in sport. This modular programme is the first of its kind and makes use of innovative, inclusive e-learning solutions like personalised avatars, combining these with peer-led support and practical learning opportunities.
Because we know peer-to-peer support can overcome barriers to participation. With over 2,200 girls benefitting from Your Time already, we know our programme has the power to build confidence and break down barriers.
The programme is fully funded by the Department of Education and is available to all state-funded schools in England.
We need girls in sport. This is how we do it.
How does it work?
Before being ready to put on a sport event, Your Time Leaders complete a series of six online learning modules that focus on developing the skills which help them to make a difference: teamwork, communication, problem solving, self-belief and self-management (our Skills Framework).
All six modules are fun and engaging, with activities that test learners’ knowledge and help them build their confidence. As they work through the programme, our Sports Ambassadors share their insight and inspiration from their own sporting careers.
After finishing the online learning, the Your Time Leaders complete the programme by leading at least one competitive sports event to their peers.
How can you get involved?
The Your Time programme is available – at no cost – to state-funded schools in England. You’ll need a minimum of six girls in year groups 9-11 per school to take part in the online learning programme and hold the sport event for their peers.
Once you’ve signed up to deliver the programme, you’ll receive full training and a competition pack, including certificates and recruitment posters, to help get you started.
Together, we can empower girls with the confidence to become leaders in sport.
