The Association for PE (afPE) has clear guidance on workforce qualifications for coaches working in the school environment. In partnership with 1st4Sport Qualifications we have developed a bespoke vocational qualification providing a recognised professional learning pathway for coaches.
Any adult supporting teachers in a physical education or school sport capacity should be qualified to a Level 2 National Governing Body (NGB) Award and working towards a Level 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Sport (L3CSDPESS) or equivalent." (afPE, March 2013).
Details on this new course can be found by clicking on the link here.
The expectation is that this requirement will be met by 2015. The current PE National Curriculum can be seen here.For more information please contact Sarah Green, Regional PE & Coaching in Education Coordinator (Midlands) Sarah.Green@TheFA.com

The FA Primary Teacher’s Award.
This course is a 6hr course designed for existing primary teachers and trainee teachers to enhance both their confidence and subject knowledge in teaching football in PE and SS environments. This practical course enables candidates to explore aspects of physical education such as developing physical literacy, the principles of teaching and learning through invasion games, and organising and managing games to promote learning and enjoyment for all pupils. The course can be delivered in one day or as 2 x3 hr workshops. The course is free for teachers/trainees and for the institution hosting the course (a practical venue is required). Candidates will receive a certificate and access to FA web resources (being developed).
