Bubble Leadership

Bubble Leadership is concept and toolkit that aims to help you implement a leadership model that will support, encourage and motivate pupils to take part in sport, physical activity and play opportunities. It was originally created within the parameters of the Government’s COVID-19 return to school guidelines.

The Bubble Leadership concept can support you to:

  • Create a movement of young leaders, who have a passion to champion school sport to improve the wellbeing of their peers
  • Help young people develop skills, and improve physical, social and emotional wellbeing acting as agents of social change
  • Reintroduce both leaders and participants to a positive routine involving physical activity
  • Increase workforce capacity by empowering young people to drive extra-curricular/informal activity with their peers.

The Bubble Leadership concept was informed by YST research ‘Youth Leadership Opportunities: Beyond COVID-19’, which was conducted to shape leadership opportunities in line with the wants and needs of young people. The full report is available to view here.
