This Girl Can in Your School
What to expect from our training:
It is continuously shown throughout research that girls are less active than their male peers. This not only effects their physical health but also their emotional wellbeing. The 'This Girl Can in Your School' training session will give you an insight of the barriers that girls face to be active and identify the different things that you can do to help break down these barriers in a school setting and in every day to day life!
If you are working in a Primary school setting this training will help you achieve step 2 of Youth Sports Trusts' '5 ways to transform primary schools with the PE and Sport Premium' model. If you are working in a Secondary school setting this training session maybe a good way to increase your knowledge about why probably some young females in your school are not engaged with being active and how you can break down the barriers and encourage them to be more active!
After completing the training you will receive a 'This Girl Can in Your School' starter kit which includes a combination of adapted free resources from a number of different campaigns and initiatives that address some of the barriers that young females face when engaging with physical activity. This starter pack will include the This Girl Can resource for schools.
