Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

The course will focus on the teaching of individual and team games with reference to some specific sports.  It will focus on promoting headline learning in physical education through games.  In particular the concept of teaching games for understanding (TGfU) will be explored including the research available that demonstrates this type of approach leads to significantly greater relational understanding and better skill performance than a traditional warm-up, skills and conditioned game lesson approach.

Evidence underpinning this approach

Andrew Frapwell has been involved in developing curriculum practices nationally and internationally - most recently in Kosovo and England.  He is the author of "Assessing without Levels" (Coachwise 2015).  You will engage in practical activities to encourage deep learning.
