The PlayMaker Award aims to give learners the skills and knowledge to be able to assist in leading their own games and activities in primary school, at break times or lunchtimes, as part of out of school hours clubs, or even at home.
Recommended age: 9 and over
Course length: 6 hours (approximately)
Assessment: There is no formal assessment.
What is the PlayMaker Award?
The PlayMaker Award is a great introduction into leadership giving learners knowledge of how to organise small games and activities that can be used during curricular and extra-curricular time, lunchtimes, breaks, as well as in sports clubs outside school hours.
The PlayMaker Award aims to help learners develop leadership skills such as organisation, communication and teamwork, as well as helping to build confidence and self-esteem as they take on the responsibility of assisting in leading their peers and younger children.
Who is the PlayMaker
Anyone can become a PlayMaker, regardless of their sporting experience or prowess. The PlayMaker Award is designed in a way so that learners can participate and learn about key leadership skills. The recommended age range is 9-11.
Is there any formal assessment?
Learners will all receive a Leadership Journal which they can use to record what they have done during the course; what they have learned, what they have enjoyed, and what they found most challenging. Certificates will be awarded once learners have completed the core elements of the PlayMaker Award and have put PACE into practice.
