Midday Supervisor & TA Training

 

We train MIDDAY MEAL/LUNCH TIME SUPERVISORS on how to include sport and physical activities effectively during lunch times. Our training programme includes ways of organising 'Play Leaders' and simple games for them to set up and lead. We provide 'impact' sheets for each attendee. These can be completed to show the advantages of having 'Play Leaders' and sports activities at lunch and break times. We teach ways to be fully inclusive during lunch and break times and will risk assess playgrounds to fully plan a fun, safe and structured lunch period.

 

We train TEACHING ASSISTANTS using a specifically designed version of our 'Team Teaching' programme, to support better PE practice. The programme includes advice on assessing children's learning during a PE lesson and help with 1-2-1 teaching. After the initial training session, each Teaching Assistant will then shadow one of our highly experienced tutors during an active PE lesson. During the following weeks, the TA's will then be asked to lead a specific part of each lesson e.g. warm-up, cool down or skill progression. Our aim is to raise the confidence and understanding levels of PE for every participant.
