Continued Professional Development & Upskill Evenings 2017-18


Sports Coaching Group offer a wide range of adult and student education packages for teachers, coaches or university students. We create bespoke packages for you and your school, club or university, get in touch with us today for more information.

We have successfully run coaching courses for both teachers and coaches based around many different sports. These courses are adapted to our candidate’s needs, from teachers who may be teaching children at Key Stage 1 – 4 or coaches from local clubs who want to learn more to pass this knowledge on to the players and other coaches at their clubs.

We also work very closely with some universities offering courses for their students. Courses for students improve their knowledge of sports which they may not have played before. Most importantly they give the candidates lots of different ideas and drills which can be adapted to different sports. Each candidate receives an extensive resource pack to take with them into their teaching and coaching careers.

Every CPD course is designed around our “Enjoy, Improve, Achieve” ethos. We are firm believers that if a player enjoys a series of coaching sessions they will improve rapidly and want to play the sports again. In turn, this will give them the opportunity to achieve different accolades through their chosen sport or sports.


Staff Upskill Evenings 2017

In light of the extra funding announced for this academic year and one of the many ways you can use your funding to improve the quality of PE which benefits pupils for now and the future Sports Coaching Group have developed a twilight CPD curriculum aimed at NQT’s, RQT’s or any teacher or teaching assistant who isn’t confident within the PE setting.

What members of staff learn throughout this academic year with SCNW can be used either in PE lessons both with KS1 and KS2 students as well as at lunch times, after school clubs or even for sports specific school teams.

Sports Coaching Group will offer candidates one 2 hour twilight session per half term from 4pm-6pm,  based from Sandbach Cricket Club. Alongside gaining knowledge through attending these Upskill Evenings candidates will receive a Sports Coaching NW coaching pack with 6 session plans per sport which details games, ideas and competitions as well as differentiation options for G&T students.

Autumn 1 – Tag Rugby Thursday 5th October 4pm-6pm
Autumn 2 – Gymnastics Thursday 16th November 4pm-6pm
Spring 1 – Key Skills (perfect for years 1-4) Thursday 1st February 4pm-6pm
Spring 2 – Hockey Thursday 15h March 4pm-6pm
Summer 1 – Cricket Thursday 26th April 4pm-6pm
Summer 2 – Tennis Thursday 14th June 4pm-6pm

The cost of each CPD session is £75 plus VAT, this includes a candidate pack for each sport as well as a certificate of attendance. If you would like to book a place on all 6 evenings the cost would be £400 plus VAT.

Due to the nature of this course we have restricted the capacity for this, bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis so please book in advance.

We appreciate that some members of staff may be competent in one or two of the sports we are running, we would like to stress that if a school books a place on these courses they can change the members of staff which attend to ensure more teachers benefit from these Upskill Evenings.

SCNW will supply all equipment needed for each evening, however due to the practical nature of these courses candidates are encouraged to wear sport appropriate clothing and bring with them a drink.

We are anticipating high demand for these courses so please make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. To book email
