Volunteer & Leadership Academy

The sports volunteering and Leadership Academy provides students with the opportunity to become involved in coaching and volunteering in the local area. 
Selected students are able to complete an additional CSLA or HSLA coaching qualification alongside their main programme of study.

As part of the programme students sign up to the Youth Sport Trust’s Step into Sport and Volunteer Passport Scheme.  Since 2009 our volunteers have completed almost 10,000 hours working in local schools and sports clubs.  This is an achievement that Dudley College are very proud of and are keen to keep developing.

Dudley College are proud to announce that in July 2011 the Volunteer and Leadership Academy received three prestigious awards.  The first being the Dudley College Team of the Year award.  The second award won was BCS Focus College of the Year for outstanding commitment to volunteering and leadership.  This award was presented at the annual BCS/AoC conference in Birmingham and was in recognition of the work that Dudley College had done in terms of hosting, co-ordinating, leading, officiating and providing volunteers at BCS events.

The third award was again received at the BCS/AoC conference and was awarded to seventeen year old Ross Ensor as the BCS Male Volunteer of the Year.  This award was presented to Ross for his outstanding contribution of over one hundred and fifty voluntary hours at college and in the local community, including coaching work at the Team Dudley Sport Activity Camps.  Well Done Ross! This has also led to Ross carrying the olympic Flame through Dudley on 30th June 2012 and then being presented with a commendation award by Lord Sebastian Coe on Friday 12th October 2012.
