I love learning!
I can’t help myself, it’s true. Having only just finished a very intense year of degree level study I’m enrolled myself on another course – I’m a fool to myself, I really am!
Having read the damming report on the decreasing levels of physical activity in the Early Years from Sport England, I began to show a increasing interest in how to make it better. First of all I shaped my knowledge by researching the subject as part of my dissertation, my finding were that the knowledge and training of staff didn’t necessarily match up to the guidance from the Chief Medical Officer’s of the UK.
I wanted to learn more, and made a promise to myself that, once my degree was over, I would further my knowledge and training on this subject. Luckily, I managed to find a company based in Manchester who offer the very course I wanted – 1st4sport Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Physical Development and Physical Activity in the Early Years.
So, I’m now working on this course with Ball Zone CIC. Mostly online but I will be required to plan, implement (and film) and evaluate a session with a group of children. Thankfully my setting is right behind me.
