Sports Leaders and Empowerment


SLQ qualifications develop leadership and life skills in young people. For over 35 years, we have built a recognised portfolio of qualifications that boost confidence, aid attainment and develop employability skills.

We develop skills for life through a range of qualifications and awards using various mediums including Sport, Dance, Lowland Expedition, Maths, Science & English. All of our qualifications are built on the four P.R.E.P learning principles:

  • Practically applied-learning

  • Recognised learning

  • Experience through volunteering

  • Peer-to-Peer delivery

As the leading awarding organisation for leadership qualifications, we aim to be the Leader in Youth Leadership and help every young person realise their potential either through our own qualifications or via partnerships where our awarding organisation expertise adds credibility and value.


We are an award-winning social enterprise that combines accredited soft skill qualifications and mentoring to empower people to achieve their potential, realise their self-worth and build positive mental resilience.

  • Those hoping to enter education, employment, training or volunteering.

  • College and university students who want to gain key employability skills and experience.
