Academic Year Coaching Round- Up

Schools Work

Heres a short summary of the year just ended. Another superb year of engagement with Schools across Dorset. From a small- group start with special and independent Schools in Autumn to an all-class , all -week Festival, I relish the challenge of making up new sessions, planning and delivering quality coaching that Teachers and Young People all enjoy.

Direction training

Its been a varied year, with Teacher training going on, several local events that arent featured on the data below, lots of off-site visits to our great local mapped areas. Whole- year group challenges, some inclusion for schools neighbouring those Ive already established links with. Several new maps for example Puddletown and St Josephs Christchurch, updates for keen teachers that love to teach the sport like Twynham and more I cant even remember it all. Its break time for us all now- so have a rest and recharge. Thankyou to all the schools mentioned below youre brilliant, I look forward to working with you all again.

Teacher Training

This Upcoming year 2019- 20 I will again be offering Map making and updates for Schools interested in starting a new Sport. Along with coached schemes of work, teacher training of how to deliver these with for the first time a package of session plans to use and re-use, enquire as to how to make any of this happen.
