Step into Sport

YST Step into Sport
These events focus on the development of leadership skills in young people with SEND, with an increased emphasis on further training and deployment opportunities in workforce specific roles.

Step into Sport (SiS) county events are organised and delivered by the YST Lead Inclusion Schools. The SiS attendees are supported by a local young role model and Athlete Role Model to develop leadership skills and understand what workforce roles they could step into. Each attendee is given a voice and empowered to return to their school and be a role model for others. 

What I’ve seen today is them developing their confidence, talking to each other, being comfortable outside of their comfort zone, feeling like they can achieve something, that there is something good that they can do and they can take that to their school. 

Teacher, Step into Sport (SPEAR interim report, 2017)

To start with I was nervous and shy going into the youth leadership workshop but throughout the day I gradually gained confidence which helped me talk to new people. It made me happy to help other people. I was selected as a young leader of my school to attend a primary cricket festival. I taught young students how to play cricket, I was nervous but very happy I did it. This will definitely help me make new friends when I go to college.
