Secondary Teacher Training programme
During the second half of 2019/20 SWTSA successfully applied for £43,350 of funding for a cluster of 13 secondary schools from across Devon. The funding provided by the National Lottery is to be used to offer specialist training to schools with the aim to better meet the needs of all children, irrespective of their level of sporting ability, and to involve them in shaping the sporting opportunities that are provided.
So far the 13 schools have worked together to write a cluster action plan and individual mini plans for their school. The funds will be allocated across three tiers: school release time; school cpd; and cluster cpd. We are planning to run leadership training with the intention of appointing student ‘Active Ambassadors’ to act as role models and leaders for Physical Activity, PE and Sport across the schools. The cluster also aims to increase knowledge and confidence of PE staff to ensure students have positive experiences in their PE lessons, through cluster training in specific areas such as Gymnastics, Yoga, Handball, OAA and Waterpolo.
The project aims to be completed between September 21 and March 22, covid dependent. Please check back here for further updates.
