Date Posted: 03/02/2015 | Posted In: Latest news
 At The Grand Final of the Darlington Sportswinners’ Scheme, QE’s Student Sport Management Team won the FE Team of the Year Award (2014.)

Paul Carroll, the College’s Sport Development Co-ordinator takes up the story –
“The Student Sport Management Team makes a massive contribution to the College community and to local schools. They have regular meetings and take on new tasks and challenges on a daily basis, regularly sharing their thoughts and ideas with Senior Managers and the College Governors.

The Team support sport staff in promoting sports events, help to coach in schools and at College sports sessions; they officiate and run leagues and events such as the recent National Women’s Football Week Futsal Taster session for girls. As part of College open evenings and careers fairs in partner schools they promote sport and help stage sports events such as Rugby masterclasses, Futsal Coaching and Netball sessions as well as displays and talks about the sporting opportunities at QE. A major project is the Future Leaders’ Scheme where they are working in partnership with Longfield and Hummersknott schools to help them set up their own Sport Management Teams. In addition, the Team has also organised fun events in College such as a Conga/Cha-cha Slide dance event for Children in Need and a Total Wipeout games session during College Health Week, all to encourage students to take part in sport and be active. Alongside all of this they contribute to the national sports agenda. Recently, two of the Team attended a conference at St George’s Park where they spoke about sports leadership at QE and how the College is doing pioneering work in leadership for students.

To conclude, this year’s Student Sport Management Team really deserve recognition for the great work they do and the massive impact they make on College and community sport. They are worthy winners of the Award.”
