You will have the opportunity to work as a PE and School Sport (PESS) Assistant within a school. A PESS assistant supports the delivery of PE in the classroom & school sport as part of extracurricular clubs and school teams.

The National School Apprenticeship programme presents a unique opportunity to start a career working in a school. You will receive comprehensive training throughout the apprenticeship and ongoing support from the school.

Working as a PE and School Sport Assistant you'll support the work of school staff to deliver high-quality PE and school sport. This may include breakfast, dinner and after school clubs, as well as curriculum activities.

Your role will begin with the setup of activity equipment in preparation for lessons. Throughout the lesson, you will assist the teacher and lead activities that will encourage all pupils to be involved. At the end of each lesson, you will review the session and tidy away all activity equipment safely.

At the end of your apprenticeship you'll achieve the nationally recognised Supporting Teaching and Learning in PE and School Sport qualification, as well as valuable work experience, that will provide you with the best chance possible of being offered a full-time role within the school or a sports organisation. A newly qualified PE Technician can earn between £14,000 and £25,000 per annum.

The curriculum gives pupils a varied range of experiences that contribute strongly to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. In recent years, we have worked hard to increase the children's engagement in PE and sports, and now have a number of clubs running in the school.
