When you are ready, you will have opportunities to lead projects on pedagogy, curriculum design and innovation. 
  • you will have free access to the academy's Sports Hub, fitness suite, classes and programmes. 
  • you will receive a MacBook Pro and an iPad to help you plan your lessons and develop and deliver professional resources and presentations.
