Physical Education and School Sport Qualifications

Plymouth and Cornwall Training are delighted to support the facilitation of PE & School Sport Qualifications.

Schools interested in supporting the development and infrastructure of their PE and School Sports provision should express their interest via the below email address. Current specialist qualification routes offered include:


  • Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Learning in Physical Education and School Sport
  • Level 3 Certificate/Diploma in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Sport
  • Level 5 Primary School Physical Education Specialism
  • Level 6 Primary School Physical Education Subject Leadership


This unique opportunity can allow Primary Schools in particular to utilise their Sports Premium funding in supporting PE teaching staff, through the provision of sport-specific coaches to assist in the delivery of lessons, breakfast clubs, lunchtimes and after school. The intended benefits to a school in supporting an opportunity such as this would include having an individual who could facilitate/support PE lessons, a potential classroom teaching assistant (to reduce costs in hiring agency staff), and support in administration tasks etc.


It is also worth noting that the Association for Physical Education (afPE) believes that "coaches employed in or by schools supporting curriculum time PE should be qualified to a Level 2 National Governing Body (NGB) Award and be working towards a Level 2 and 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Sport or equivalent, to comply with the forthcoming afPE Safe Practice Guidance for Schools."

Level 5 Primary School Physical Education Specialism Delegate Joe Peters (Cubert School): 'I have really enjoyed the course and I feel more confident in my role as PE lead at my school, the course has really developed my confidence and has exceeded my expectations. It has allowed me to take new skills back to my school'.
