Frequently Asked Questions

  • Apprentices have planned and lead intra-school sports competitions across a range of year groups.
  • Apprentices have helped deliver breakfast / after-school sport and exercise clubs that have enriched the PE curriculum offer.
  • Apprentices have helped increase confidence, knowledge and skills of staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Apprentices have helped support daily exercise programmes outside of PE, such as ‘The Daily Mile’.
  • Apprentices have assisted with the planning and delivery of PE lessons within classes that require an extra focus on developing physical literacy.
