We have used Teach Sport to train all our coaches these past years. I know Ian and the team of tutors well and I recognise their attention to the smaller details when it comes to teaching and delivery of high standard lessons. They focus on all the small things that make teaching sport so great, from ensuring lessons are engaging to differentiation to running sporting events that keep our children coming back again and again.

To start the course you will need a work placement where you can complete your hours of teaching, coaching and observation. This may be a primary school, secondary school or company that is working schools delivery physical education. We recommend you speak to your primary school, or coaching company as they wish to place you on the course and contribute to the cost. With this you should have an up to date DBS. Other than that, you will need a computer to access the online learning, Wi-Fi connection and access to a tripod and recording camera. We ask that you use a professional camera to record sessions for submission and not a mobile phone.
Each week you will be asked to attend online lessons or seminars. This is usually on your "study" day of the week. Throughout the rest of the week you will be working on the job, collecting evidence and practicing those things you have learnt in your online lessons. You will be required to complete a number of units throughout the course. This might require you to complete written assignments, practical observations, either recorded or signed off by your work place mentor.
We ask that you are a minimum of 17 years old to do the course.
A workplace mentor is someone in your school or workplace who is their to support and verify your training in the workplace. From time to time, our tutors will connect with your workplace mentor to see how you are getting on.
