Youth work is a core element of BCSDN’s mission and young people’s programmes provide the foundation for this, such as the Sheer SKILL Programme. The Sheer SKILL programme is aimed at schools, community groups, sports clubs and young people working at GCSE Level and/or A Levels in Physical Education.
In the past number of years it has offered young people valuable and practical work experience in a safe and fun environment alongside the opportunity to enhance their CVs. This programme strongly supports cross-community relations further developing pupils’ interpersonal skills. The aim of this scheme is to use sports as a medium through which young people can create better links and relationships with other communities, while creating a platform for their future goals. BCSDN want to ensure that this programme will continue to deliver what it promises in providing ‘Skilled Knowledge and Igniting Lifelong Learning.’
