Applications *NOW OPEN* for the 22/23 Primary School PE Specialism Course

This nationally recognised qualification, accredited by AfPE and Sports Leaders UK, aims to upskill primary school teachers, future teachers and school support staff to improve the overall delivery of the Physical Education curriculum.

This is a perfect opportunity to use your Primary PE & Sport Premium funding to focus on staff CPD.This is a bespoke physical education and school sport qualification for primary school teachers, future teacher and school support staff, developed by the Association for Physical Education (AfPE) and Sports Leaders UK.

The aim of the qualification is to up-skill primary colleagues to be able to assist the delivery of high quality primary school PE. The course will address the top 3 concerns of subject knowledge, health and safety and subject leadership.

At Active Together (formerly known as Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport) we are committed to supporting our primary schools with the continued professional development of their staff, to ensure the delivery of high quality PE, school sport and physical activity for all pupils in all schools.

To date, we have successfully trained over 100 primary teachers and support staff and we are committed to ensuring we have a PE specialist in every school across Leicestershire, Leicester, and Rutland.

This year's course will be run face-to-face. This course requires five days of tutor delivery, followed by individual work back at School and in delegates own time. The first four days are taught in an intensive format, over two consecutive weeks, with the final day later in the academic year.

It is really important delegates attend all the days so they can complete the required elements of the course.
