Supporting Teaching and Learning in P.E. Apprenticeship level 3 at Sheffield College
This apprenticeship would suit you if you would like a career as a PE teacher working to support children’s physical activities and school sport development.
As an apprentice you will be working in a school or possibly in the community helping to deliver, plan, and organise the delivery of low risk physical activities as part of a school sport programme or holiday programme.
This course will prepare you for employment in a school sport setting by supporting the PE staff to plan, prepare, deliver and assess the school sport programme and to help review where things have worked well and what changes can be made to improve.
You will have opportunities to run both curriculum based and extra-curricular activities. You could be in charge of the school’s sports team, organise and lead a sport event or competition or support community based sport activities. You might act as a sport coach or development officer supporting talented young sports people and encouraging others to take up a sport they might not have considered.
The day you spend in college you will cover topics such as how to safeguard the wellbeing of children and young people, understanding children and young people’s development and how to prepare for a role as a mentor. You will work towards Functional Skills qualifications in English and maths if you don’t already have a grade 4.
Will it suit me? You should be enthusiastic about sport and involving others. Good, professional communication skills are essential and both with children and adults.
4 GCSEs at 4/C including English Language and Maths.
Throughout the course you will be assessed in the workplace to show competence at work. You will be expected to keep a portfolio of evidence. Your college work is assessed by your tutor or assessor using a range of methods including taught sessions and written tasks.
At The Sheffield College we will always do our best to support you through your studies, to make them as stress free as possible. We have a specialist support team who can give you all the advice you need on all things financial, including what might be available to you, so that you don’t go short and you can concentrate all your efforts into your studies.
If you meet the eligibility criteria we’ll be able to support you with free meals. You’ll get an amount of money that you can use within the college shops and diners per day. This will be added to your student ID card which you will just swipe to purchase items.
