Sports Coach UK | ScUK


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

partners to ensure that coaches

are able to support, not displace,

eachers in curriculum time,

allowing schools to offer more PE

and school sport opportunities "
