Our MU Foundation Language Leaders
Year 9 pupils have been busy working towards their accredited Language Leaders qualification with Manchester United Foundation.
The qualification is part of our extra-curricular offer with our partners Manchester United Foundation. As part of the course, pupils will get the opportunity to plan a fundraising event. They will be raising funds for a CRY (Care and Relief For The Young) who supports young children in rural towns in Cusco, Peru, by providing food and education.
Mr Dearden, Hub Development Officer at Manchester United Foundation, said: “It’s a great opportunity for pupils to acquire an additional accredited qualification. We develop our young people to become leaders whilst learning a Spanish and raising money for a great cause.”
The qualification helps to equip our young people with the skills required to lead in language activities. It focuses on the development of their communication, organisation and motivational skills.
Oscar, Year 9 pupil, said: “I’ve really enjoyed it so far. It’s been interesting to learn about the charity in Peru and plan a fundraising event. I get a qualification and the chance to help children.”
