STAFF COACHING COURSES

The following courses are available to teachers in schools.

THE FA PRIMARY TEACHERS AWARD

The FA Primary Teachers Award is a one-day course designed for any practicing or aspiring primary school teachers and it has been hugely successful in developing teachers’ confidence to deliver high quality PE.

The course presents ideas for lessons using multi-directional games based around movement skills for 5–11 year olds and directional games based around the basic principles of invasion games. The tutors show how differentiation and assessment for learning can be embedded in PE lessons and also give guidance to those teachers who might run a school team.

The course is applicable for those who wish to build on their existing knowledge and those with little confidence of PE or football.
Throughout the course, the tutors will also explain the importance of high quality PE in schools in order to develop confidence, self-esteem and belief amongst children and also the benefits of PE in raising academic achievement across other school subjects.

ISFA works closely with The FA to offer this course free of charge to member schools. For more information on this course, including organising a course for your school, please contact ISFA National Football Development Manager Ian Bent.
