Learn About Teacher Training (October 6th)

All School of Sport & Exercise Science students are invited to attend a seminar on Tuesday 6th October that will cover teacher training options such as the PGCE route, School Direct etc. The session will be led by Cathy Thomas and Rachael Sharpe (from the School of Education) and will provide advice on topics such as applications and career options.

The session will start at 1pm in MB1009 and is for all students with an interest in teaching, whether that is PE, primary or other subjects.

It is strongly recommended that any third-year students looking to apply for teacher training attend this seminar; this is the main opportunity for you to receive guidance before your applications would need to be completed. (One third year module do have a timetabled clash, and alternative arrangements will be made for anyone in that group who is interested in a teaching career.)

Become a Squash & Racketball Activator! (Free training provided)

England Squash & Racketball are offering students a fantastic opportunity to be trained as a student activator. The training will cover skills that will help you organise, plan and deliver activities more effectively in any sport. Workshops will cover topics from practical facilitation of sessions to setting up online leagues etc. We have been invited to send up to four students, and you can attend training at a Squash Innovation Day in either Hull (on September 25th) or Derby (October 12th). Please click on the appropriate link for more details.

Attendance is free of charge, but our places are limited to four so please contact Peter Fozard to apply for a place – or request more details – as soon as possible. His contact details are on the Innovation Day flyers.

This opportunity is open to any of our students, including those who started this month! There is no set criteria/skill level behind the type of person they are looking for, just a passion for getting more people actively involved in squash. You do not have to be a high level squash player, for instance.
