Sports England to Invest £13.5 Million in PE Teacher Workforce Skills
October 5, 2018
Following a successful pilot, Sports England has this week announced £13.5 million of funding for a teacher training programme offering “free training … [for] … 7,000 secondary school PE teachers to help foster a more positive attitude to physical education”.
The funding for these training programmes will be administered by teaching schools across the country and Sports England encourage all schools interested in accessing the funding to contact their local teaching schools alliance (TSA). Sports England state that they aim to give “all schools in England the opportunity to take part by 2021”.
Those governing should pass this information on to their headteacher.
