Level 6 Award – PE & School Sport Leadership

Level 6 Award

Professional Vocational Qualification Primary School

PE & School Sport Leadership

The Level 6 course is a nationally recognised qualification that aims to upskill primary school teachers, HLTAs and TAs (with QTS) to improve leadership and management of the delivery of the physical education curriculum within primary schools.  The aim of this qualification is to enable subject leaders to support and upskill other colleagues in teaching the physical education curriculum.  On successful completion of this qualification, delegates will be able to advocate, articulate and lead physical education to achieve whole school improvement.

The program consists of three facilitated full day sessions with independent tasks undertaken in school, which will benefit individual school PE programmes and actions.  There is an opportunity of networking across schools supporting each other through the process as well as pupil participations in sport activities between schools organised by New College Play Leaders scheme.


The programme consists 38 hours, which includes 18 tutored hours and 20 independent learning hours. The course will begin with a 1½-hour induction to outline the objectives and expectations of the course in which the appraiser or member of the SMT will also be invited. There will then be three tutored sessions from 9:00am to 3:30pm over the Autumn & Spring terms as follows:
