CPD & Professional Learning

Learn from our expert sports & gymnastics coaches

Junior Sport Stars have been working closely with teaching staff from a number of schools in Greater Manchester in the delivery of gymnastics, dance, and outdoor P.E. Every school is different and teachers have varied subject knowledge when it comes to P.E. Through a consultation with a member of our team, we will draw up a plan to suit your school’s and your teaching staff’s individual requirements.

Our more experienced staff deliver the sessions with the teachers assisting. When the teachers feel more confident, we then assess them delivering their own sessions under our guidance and supervision. They are also given guidance on how a session should be structured and how a half term, term, and full year of P.E. should be structured.

Gymnastics

CPD for gymnastics is available for either a half term, full term, or for a full year. The more sessions that are covered the more experience the teachers will gain. All of our CPD is delivered by our Head Coach of Gymnastics.

During the sessions the coach will outline how a lesson is structured, how to support the children during various moves and, most importantly, how to do it safely. We have found that a lot of teachers feel uncomfortable coaching gymnastics because they either do not have much subject knowledge or, if they do, struggle to deliver the session correctly because they have not had the opportunity to witness it first hand.

Through a consultation with a member of our team, we will work out what is best for you and your school. Some schools outline areas of gymnastics that each individual teacher would like to learn more about, and the coach will plan their sessions around their chosen subject or subjects. Other schools have already purchased coaching tools (Valsabin, Knowlsey Approach, Real Gym etc.) and would like us to show them how to deliver these to a higher standard. All the while, each session will incorporate class management, alternative teaching, and maximum participation.
