The Education programme at HGCT is a successful programme that allows all students to strive and achieve the highest grade. The programme offered me everything necessary in order to achieve the best grade whether that was from the level of teaching or the facilities and equipment that were given to us to use to the best of our ability. The education programme was also very helpful as the tutors would always be of assistance to you when required, meaning when you were struggling they would be able to point you in the right direction.
From a personal perspective I think the course allowed me to enhance my knowledge on many different aspects of Sport in general, which enables you to have a different outlook on areas of sport. In addition to that this course increased my level of confidence to speak to an open group, which was further developed on the sports leaders’ course. Another personal development for me would be my organisational skills as I would often have to follow a structure with my assignments and meet the completion date. This is another skill I have developed and can transfer to all aspects of my life which will have a positive impact.
The course also offered me a lot of opportunities to do practical work which was enjoyable as it got you away from your laptop allowing you to put the knowledge you’ve learnt in to practice. I completed the course with a Distinction* Distinction* Distinction*. As well as that, the HGCT helped everyone towards achieving a Sports Leaders qualification which allowed you to learn new skills that will benefit you in the future. After achieving the grades I was aspiring to, I have progressed on to do a degree in Sports Business Management at Leeds Beckett University.
Great relationships with the children which promote mutual respect, clear boundaries and great behaviour for learning. Clear structure to the lessons with appropriate teaching points, plenary and vocabulary. I can see clear progress in terms of skills, techniques, confidence and understanding. Acts on feedback throughout the lesson from me and his own formative assessment.

PE lessons and support in PE lessons are great! Children are enjoying lunchtime clubs. Good relationships with children - building relationships. Sharing tickets to the rugby games with the children and encouraging them to try to watch different sports. The sessions during the breakfast club are extremely engaging and the majority of children who chose to go outside to take part in Jordan’s sessions they are also very fun based and extremely inclusive so all abilities can take part successfully., Jordan is always punctual and is pleasant with the children.

Becky is amazing her delivery is great. She has a great rapport with the children. Her sessions are engaging and fun and she's teaching my staff a thing or two about sports delivery. All in all, we could not be happier.
Louise Brown, Head Teacher, Headfield Juniors
Rebecca has been brilliant in school. Her management in club time is fantastic and coping with Autistic and ADHD children in sessions as well. Her planning, activity organisation and management, as well as knowledge of the children, and rapport with everyone has been so professional we couldn't have asked for more. The children have really enjoyed all the sessions.
Debbie Douglas, Head Teacher, Saville Town
The sessions so far have been really good and exciting. Teaching staff have mentioned how engaged the children are and how happy they have been the way the lessons have been delivered. The school has been happy with the confidence of the person delivering the lessons as well as their knowledge and professionalism. It has helped teachers working alongside to gain ideas and development in their own practice. Overall the school has been very happy with the delivery of the sessions as well as the person (Jordan) delivering them. Thank You!
Nadeem Sarwar, PE Coordinator Spring Grove
Duane was brilliant, the children loved the sessions, as did the teachers he worked with. One teacher said, "I now feel skilled enough to deliver rugby to my class." The sessions were pitched at the correct level for different ages and the pace and behaviour management were excellent. Here's to next years sessions!

James is doing an amazing job at Bruntcliffe. He teaches four very different groups throughout the day and is adaptable in his teaching. He has fit in with the team very well and the students are responding very well to his teaching.
Chris Lindley, Head of Physical Education, Bruntcliffe Academy
Duane's delivery of Sky Try Rugby was fantastic. The children left with a wealth of knowledge on the sport - the have even practised what they have learnt in the playground too. His behaviour management was fantastic and the children responded well to everything he taught. Each one of them made a progression each week. Overall it was loved by all children! We would love it if you could come back again next year!
