QE Hosts Sports Leadership Day

Date Posted: 12/02/2014 | Posted In: Latest news

QE’s Student Sport Management Team (SSMT) recently delivered and hosted a Leadership Day involving 18 first year students from the College. The day was aimed at encouraging more first years to get involved in leadership within sport.

Lauren Jordinson, Head of Leadership, commented:

“We chose to host the event on a non- teaching day to indicate which students were committed and who could potentially continue our legacy. We included a range of theory based and practical workshops linked to the experiences of our members.’’


The workshops included: coaching, refereeing and media training with presentations from inspirational guest speakers. The students keenly listened to presentations from two former students Hannah Marshall and Matt Gatiss, Kieran Laverick, a representative from Durham FA, and Tamara Taylor an England Rugby international.

First year student, Lily Campbell, said:

“The presentations were inspirational, encouraging and motivational. I now fully intend to be more involved with leadership in the College and hope to continue the Student Sport Management Team legacy next year.’

Hannah Mattinson, Secretary of the SSMT, added:

“We hope the students were inspired and that they will follow in our footsteps as the next generation of the SSMT. The Leadership Day was beneficial for all concerned and we will continue working with the first years, moulding their hierarchy as we do so.’’
