Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! On this project you'll combine coaching sports with teaching to children in Primary Schools in Perth. The majority of the schools we work with are Intensive English Centres, where you'll be able to coach disadvantaged refugee children and also do some teaching at the same time, thus helping them to adjust and settle into their new home country. Many of the children come from war-torn countries such as Sudan and Somalia.
We work with a variety of schools in Perth that each differ in terms of the ages of the children and their sporting abilities. Your day will usually be made up of a mixture of teaching in class plus the chance to coach children a sport or a number of sports during PE lessons. As the sports lessons won't fill up your time-table, you'll help out with other lessons, too, such as English and helping with reading and writing. The sports that you can usually coach are Football and Cricket.
You’ll have the opportunity to coach a sport, or a number of sports, in the day time during school hours, to children in Primary schools. The ages range from 5 to 10 years-old. The children at the school are young and sport is part time and to a “playground” standard only. These primary schools are IEC (Intensive English Centers) schools and take refugee children from countries such as Afghanistan, Sudan and Somalia. However, the combination of teaching and coaching will give you great diversity on the project.
The sports are generally coached by season, but if you wanted to coach a sport that was not in season, or if you wanted to introduce a new sport to the children, the school would welcome it as long as it was of benefit to the children.
Usually, you will be involved in a wide range or specific sporting activities, which will give you a very diverse project.
