ALL of our training is free!  We want to offer as many training opportunities as possible to schools throughout the county, so it's really important that you cancel your place if you are not able to come along. We, therefore, ask that if for any reason you are unable to attend, please let us know.  

If you do not attend our training and haven't advised us with 24 hours notice, your school will be invoiced to the value of £25.

The administration of our training sessions is now hosted by the Cornwall Health Promotion Service.

BHF Active Club

The British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Active Club pack is a resource to help plan and deliver fun and inclusive activity. It is a user-friendly resource that provides an ideal starting point for those who may not have any previous experience of delivering physical activity. Topics covered include:

  •  Why physical activity is so important
  •  Ways to encourage children to get active at school (including those who are reluctant)
  •  A range of practical activity ideas to use outside and during wet play, to help children become more active
  • How to get the children in your school active and playing games together; at lunchtimes, wet break or in a breakfast or after school club.  

Perfect for teachers, TAs and lunchtime supervisors.  Don’t forget your trainers as you even get chance to try some of the ideas out for yourself! By the end of the day you’ll be itching to put it all into practice!  Find out more about BHF Active Club

This course can be arranged at a date and time to suit you (free of charge). We ask for a minimum of 8 delegates and quiet space and facilities to deliver the training - a school hall works well as there needs to be enough space to try out the activities. You may like to join up with other schools in your local area or MAT to form a cluster based training session.
