Zambia IDEALS Project
The Department of Sports Development & Recreation is an active participant in a Sports Leadership Project which takes place in Zambia each year.
Students who are selected to participate work in a sports development and coaching capacity in the heart of local communities in the Zambian capital of Lusaka.
International Development Through Excellence and Leadership in Sport or IDEALS is a UK Sport initiative which aims to establish a high quality, progressive and co-ordinated sports leadership development exchange programme for young people aged 20-35 between the UK and partner countries.
In 2012 the Wallace Group (Universities of Bath, Cardiff Met, Durham, Loughborough, Nothumbria, St Andrews and Stirling) sent over 40 students and eight staff members on professionals placements working with two Non Government Organisations based in Lusaka, Zambia, Sport in Action and Edusport as part of the IDEALS programme.
Application process closed for 2012
The volunteer application period is now closed until 2013.
