Learning in and through Competitive activities and games

What is this course about?

The course was developed in response to the DfE (2013) statutory programme of study for physical education which requires schools to include competitive activities and games in their curriculum offer to children at Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. It provides you with ideas to promote learning aligned to the National curriculum requirements in Competitive activities, games and sports. We also provide you with a starter resource pack to support learning and progress towards higher standards.


What does this course cover?

The course will focus on the teaching of individual and team games with reference to some specific sports. It will focus on promoting headline learning in physical education through games. In particular the concept of teaching games for understanding (TGfU) will be explored including the research available that demonstrates this type of approach leads to significantly greater relational understanding and better skill performance than a traditional warm-up, skills and conditioned game lesson approach.


Who is it suitable for?

This qualification is suitable for any physical education teacher, teaching assistant, coach, consultant, trainer or Ofsted inspector who is working with primary or secondary schools to raise the standard of physical education and school sport for children and young people.


What is the duration of the course?

The course is one full day from 9am for registration and refreshments for a 9.30am start through to 4pm.


How is it assessed?

Your needs are assessed throughout the day and responded to. There is no formal assessment required on your part. You will be provided with a colour bound course booklet and a 2GB memory stick with the PowerPoint used and numerous documents providing background reading. You will also receive a starter resource pack for your school.
