UCLan Sports Coaching undergraduate Sarah Nickless has been chosen to attend the prestigious BUCS Deloitte Leadership Academy.
The exclusive two day event, for 100 students across the UK, is designed to offer aspiring leaders involved in university sport a practical insight into skills that will positively shape their development and greatly improve employability prospects.
Several leadership experts from sport, business and the military will be in attendance to help participants develop a range of transferable leadership skills, understand performance and the importance of networking, negotiating and influencing.
Sarah was chosen to attend the event as a result of wide range of volunteering activities, including work as a Football Activator at UCLan.
She said: "The BUCS Deloitte Leadership Academy 2014 offers me the opportunity to learn and question my current skills and leadership qualities with a view to developing them.
"The Academy is not just about developing people for their university leadership roles, but for all walks of life. I'm excited to be working with other like-minded people during what promises to be a fantastic two days."
The event takes place in Herefordshire from 20-21 November.
