I'm applying for a P.e Teaching assistant apprenticeship and have come across a question that i'm not too sure about how to answer. the question is How will you support the school's sports coach in delivering quality sports provision?
I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help and look forward to hearing from you.

My daughter has worked as a Sports Coach this year ( she starts a PGCE shortly), one of the TA's has given her support over the year. I know he has gone with her when they have attended sports competitions at other schools. I would think he's helped with safeguarding, there if there's any injuries (daughter's a First Aider) so he would watch the children if she had to attend to any problems. I would say something about motivating and encouraging the children, promoting sports events, and lunch/after school clubs, encouraging children who don't attend any lunch/after school clubs and offering to help at them. Mention checking equipment and the environment before the start of any sporting activity and also mention any sport your particularly interested in and how you would be particularly interested in helping in any way with that sport. It's important to mention inclusion, making sure everyone is included in the sports session, no one is left out. Helping with anyone who is struggling, maybe in small groups or one to one. There will be SEN's who will need extra help, so you could support them. Offer administration help with putting posters up, distributing newsletters, photocopying etc which advertise sporting events. I'd say you are interested in taking sports coaching qualifications and a first aid qualification if they were available to you. I hope this helps.Last edited by Anniepower; 05-07-2014 at 19:02.
