Until 2010, Badminton England had been delivering Leader Award training to under-16s on a face-to-face through clubs up and down the country. Naturally this was resource intensive. By switching to an e-learning model, Badminton England were immediately able to reach out to youngsters more easily and more effectively.
The Award itself provides young people with the opportunity to develop skills in core areas, such as leadership, when volunteering at club, county, school, college, university and event level. The course is delivered using a bespoke portal and includes a journal tracker for sharing experiences with mentors.
