Renfrewshire School of Sport Education (RSSE) is a sports coaching training and education programme for post-16 pupils still in full-time education. The programme consists of 3 hours of training a week over a 20 week period. During this time, the participants are given the opportunity to develop their leadership, communication and social skills – all essential skills for sports coaching, but also invaluable transferable skills for life and work. The young people then volunteer in local school and communities to influence and inspire the next generation to be more physically active and healthy. This has resulted in the delivery of an ever-growing, sustainable and diverse programme of sports and physical activity across Renfrewshire Council, an essential contribution to developing strong and sustainable communities.
The PE department, in partnership with the Active Schools Co-Ordinators, annually put pupils names forward who have shown a commitment to develping their leadership skills within the school community. There is an interview for these highly prestegious places which pupils take part in both a practical and spoken interview.
If any senior pupil (S5/6) is interested in this opportunity speak to your PE teacher, or active schools co-ordinator today!
