We are not just passionate about PE. We are passionate about making PE better. Since the average teacher might get only 3 hours of learning devoted to PE through the course of their studies, breaking the chain is our number one priority.
First Step PE CPD sessions offer tailored sessions to your staffs’ needs. We put the goals and needs of your pupils at the centre of our planning. Our CPD support sessions can be delivered in a range of activities including Striking & Fielding, Gymnastics and Curriculum Dance, many of which correspond directly with skills in flexibility, cultural awareness, and school sports days.
PE sessions are multi-dimensional. Like any subject, there are various strategies to get the best out of your teaching and your pupils. We can develop skills in behavioural management strategies, to help you reduce disruption, employ positive reinforcement and improve skill retention for pupils. We can also check the outcomes of lessons testing new approaches against more traditional approaches to teaching to find out what yields the best result.
And our knowledge base is far-ranging. We aim to provide you with a strong understanding of safe age-appropriate activities, that have both indoor and outdoor applications. We understand the need for working with a range of abilities, so we can focus on how you demonstrate skills and pitch them as tools to progress more able students.
Our PE specialist will walk you through the initial discussions to develop a plan of action based on your experiences of teaching sport or physical activity. From there, we will zero in on the skills that best fit your needs and put together a schedule with your teaching staff so they understand what the focus will be each week.
We find that making this process as collaborative as possible is the best way to support teachers to deliver PE lessons that have a lasting positive impact. With our firm understanding of the targets necessary for schools to recover, we are on hand with CPD training that is up-to-date and brimming with ideas for the future.
