CPD opportunities for Teachers

Disability Awareness in  Sport 

School sport plays an essential role in a disabled person’s health and well-being. It can provide a level playing field for them and their peers where other subjects and experiences may not. This 6hr course combines our accredited disability awareness course and introduces the Inclusion Spectrum, providing an opportunity for new and existing PE teachers to increase their knowledge, build confidence and develop strategies and opportunities for a disabled pupil to take part in sport.

This course is available in person (with a practical) or available online (no practical)

Sport Inclusion Model Made Simple

This half-day course provides an introduction to the Sport Inclusion Model, supporting teachers to be inclusive and ensure that every pupil has the opportunity to be active.  The session develops an understanding of the practical elements of the model and allows teachers to put what they learn into practice. This session includes;

  • What are the barriers to disabled people taking part in sport
  • External factors affecting participation
  • The STEP model explained
  • The Inclusion Spectrum and examples

Adapting PE to Encourage and Engage Everyone

We all know that finding alternative ways to do something is never simple and can be very daunting and frustrating.  Using our 20 years of experience as a para coach spanning numerous different sports, we can support teachers to adapt and develop their sessions.  We share our successes and things that did not work so well, to enable you to develop the best lesson possible.  This session explains the key things to consider and provides you with practical examples, equipment, hints and tips from people in the know.

Bespoke Sessions

We work with individual schools and pupils to encourage and develop fully integrated sessions.
We attend the school or place of teaching and support the teacher and the students with extra needs to adapt and take part in the sport session. This will include a pre-meeting and follow up session if needed. The sport/activity could be any PE-based activity, swimming or non-traditional sports. We have a wide range of sporting equipment available to schools to allow the school to see what is available and what is best for their students.
