The young leader legacy programme ‘Flames: Lighting the way’ is going from strength to strength with the 2012 inspired initiative having helped get over 200,000 children on the move so far.
The programme has been developed by the British Heart Foundation in partnership with Loughborough College while it is being delivered in association with the British Heart Foundation National Centre at Loughborough University.
The focal point of Flames is coaching of young leaders to deliver physical activity to primary school-aged children.
The Flames resources support young leaders’ learning by giving them the understanding, skills and confidence to deliver activity sessions with children.
It aims to add value to any leadership-based programme by offering the opportunity to gain practical experience.
The latest modification to Flames is designed to make the programme even easier for colleges, clubs and uniform groups to get involved as supporting resources have been made available free of charge from the official website: www.flameslightingtheway.co.uk
For a helpful hand, optional training is also available.
The British Heart Foundation is committed to supporting children’s physical activity as part of a heart healthy lifestyle and has announced further funding for Flames until March 2015.
