Sports Leaders Awards

Gateway North East is an Approved Assessment Centre (AAC), meaning we are approved by Sports Leaders UK for the delivery of their courses.


Sport Leaders UK are a independent charity that provides qualifications to those most in need in society. Their qualifications create opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.  They believe everyone can, and should, give back to their local community. Their courses are based on fun, physical activity and volunteering. Given this, a Sports Leaders qualification provides the following benefits, to name but a few:

Qualifications help to create an army of experienced and enthusiastic volunteers.

A Sports Leaders qualification is a nationally recognised qualification which complements the delivery of other programmes of study such as Key Stage 4 National Curriculum in Physical Education, ‘A’ Level PE, BTEC in Sport and Recreation.

Sports Leaders awards improve the behaviour and temperament of participants through increased self-confidence and self-worth.
