Promoting Level 3 within secondary schools

Posted on
  • Below are some notes from the discussion in the Buzz Group session at the 2014 conference - thoughts/comments?

    • Transition level 3 courses. In the summer holiday before Year 7. Transition to Secondary School. Outspoken trained 120 children in one school
    • Try to put the course into P.E curriculum time. Schools need to be targeted now for the next academic year.
    • There are some issues around extra curriculum time, difficult to ensure take up
    • Level 3 sometimes can be perceived as not fun. Children often just see it as an extension of lessons. The key is to make it fun, maybe change the course title.
    o Bike Club
    o Skills Training.
    • General experience of holiday courses is the low numbers turning up to the course. Organisations may need to make the participants pay beforehand to ensure they turn up.
    • Marketing:
    o Parent mail, this is a mail from the school to all parents
    • Secondary schools are tricky as no one takes responsibility. Try:
    o PE teachers, failing that head of year
    o The police officer in charge of the schools
    o The inset or extra curriculum day.
