Description of module content:

This module will explore the role of volunteering within sport, primarily from the perspective of the volunteer although consideration will also be given to the value of volunteering to an organisation. Active participation as a volunteer within a sporting organisation is a fundamental component of the module. The module will introduce a number of core employability skills and competencies and provide an opportunity to develop your individual skill set.
