Sports Coach UK has worked with the Association for Physical Education, the County Sports Partnership Network, Sport England, and the Youth Sport Trust to produce a web portal to guide head teachers on how to maximise the impact of the Primary PE and Sport Premium.
The portal, which is updated with new information and resources on a regular basis, can be viewed at the following link:
It includes information on:
Why should I use a coach in my school?
How can my school work with coaches most effectively?
What qualifications and skills should I look for in a good coach?
How can CSW Sport or other organisations help to identify a coach?
How can I create a suitable job advert and where do I advertise?
What steps do I need to take to recruit the right coach?
How do i ensure coaches become part of the school community?
What training is available to help my coaches or teachers?
How can i retain coaches?
How do I evaluate the quality and the impact of my coach
The portal is simple to navigate through.
By clicking on the questions that are relevant to you, answers appear in a new window.
" We’re working closely with
