Achieving Wider Key Skills through Boxing

Tamworth Boxing Club is the first Boxing Club in the country to deliver both Wider Key Skills and the Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE) qualification. Alan Keast, who runs the club, recognises the impact boxing has on harder-to-reach pupils and how ASDAN qualifications offer a way to quantify their successes. ‘Through the boxing activity, pupils are also gaining qualifications; something that we hadn’t achieved before’. The boxing club has now delivered more than 50 Wider Key Skills qualifications. As a registered centre it is supporting other Amateur Boxing Association clubs in gaining Wider Key Skills for their young people.
