  • Each course has a cost of $44.00 per teacher.
  • Course information will be available to participants once enrolment is completed.
  • These 5 courses are available only to teachers in NSW Department of Education schools.

School-developed procedures for school sport - a review template

The review template is included in the Reviewing procedures for school sport course document. It has been developed for schools to adapt and reflect the organisation and management of sport and physical activity in the school. The procedures are a mandatory requirement of the Sport and Physical Activity Policy.

Completion of the review template is included as part of the Reviewing procedures for school sport course (Highly accomplished career stage).

Primary teachers wanting to improve planning and delivery of physical education and sport will find this useful. iPLAY is an evidence based intervention using experienced teachers of PE and sport to mentor peers in improving practice.

Explore the iPLAY website to learn more about the research study and how your school can sign up to be part of this exciting program.
