Shrewsbury Town in the Community attend FA and Premier League training eventShrewsbury Town in the Community (STITC) were invited to attend The FA and Premier League L3 Physical Education and School Sport Tutor (PESS) Training event at Warwick University during the February half-term.
28 delegates from various Premier League and Football League clubs attended the event, which was led by The Football Association (FA) and The Premier League Charitable Fund, it was aimed at supporting football club staff with the delivery of high quality primary school PE.
By attending the event, Community Sports Development Manager, Tom Peevor is now able to tutor the L3 Physical Education School Sport Qualification to STITC staff in order for them to be suitably qualified to support and deliver high quality PE provision in primary schools.
The first two days of the five-day residential course consisted of The FA ‘Develop The Developers’ training, led by Les Howie and Roger Davies from The National FA. The event was supported by the Premier League Charitable Fund, which links in with the Premier League Primary Star project currently being delivered in local primary schools.
On the third day, FA National Foundation Phase Lead Coach Peter Sturgess led the morning theory session, explaining the “Developing Child” and the foundation phase England DNA, and how this links to high quality PE provision. The afternoon was practical focused with multiple active participation sessions being delivered.
The final two days were focused specifically on the L3 PESS qualification, and was delivered by The National FA PE Unit. Attendees learnt about methods of learning, marking, sharing of good practice and micro teaching sessions.
Tom Peevor who attended the training event explained: “It was a fantastic experience to attend this event, it was great to see that there is a lot of high quality PE being delivered by football clubs in partnership with the Premier League. I think that STITC working in partnership with the Premier League and The FA will not only benefit the pupils in Shropshire but will also increase class teacher’s confidence to deliver high quality PE.”
