Towards the end of September, all the Ceredigion Young Ambassadors attended one-day training sessions across Ceredigion in three different leisure centres, to learn new leadership skills and how to prepare and deliver safe physical activity opportunities within their school.

The Young Ambassadors also took part in Mini Disability Inclusion Training to encourage everyone in their schools to be involved in their inclusive activities.

Alwyn Davies, Active Young People Manager, said, “Each and every Young Ambassador have a vital role in inspiring their peers and contributing to more physically active school- it’s fantastic to see the Young Ambassadors already making a difference within their schools and enjoying being young leaders.”

Councillor Catrin Miles, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Learning Services said, “It’s positive to hear that the Bronze Young Ambassadors are delivering new initiatives within their schools. It’s brilliant that the children have been given this opportunity to further develop their leadership skills and have been shown how to be mindful of ensuring that the activities they deliver are inclusive to all children, regardless of their ability. I’m sure that what the children have learnt during the sessions and the experiences they gain during the Young Ambassador Leadership Programme will be valuable life skills that they and others will benefit from for years to come.”

Over 100 Bronze Young Ambassadors have been identified across Ceredigion Primary Schools to be role models within their schools and to promote and deliver physical activity opportunities to their peers. The young ambassadors have already been busy within their schools setting up new initiatives and inspiring pupils to be active.
