GSSP Coaching Placement

Bridgemary School & Gosport School Sport Partnership – Coaching Placement Programme 2013

For the 2013-14 academic year the School Sport Partnership has taken on two former Bridgemary and St Vincent students on a voluntary coaching placement to support the partnership in its day to day delivery and support coaches delivering in schools.

Garath Plow and Jamie Hall studied BTEC Level 3 Extend Diploma in Sport (Development, Coaching and Fitness) at St Vincent College, both achieving a Triple Grade.  They both completed their 1st4Sport Level 2 Award in Leadership through Football and Jamie completed his Sports Leaders UK Level 3 Higher Sports Leaders award.

The coaching placement through the SSP allows both Garath and Jamie to access high quality experiences and good practice in delivering sport and physical activity in an educational environment, working alongside qualified coaches who will mentor them through a 6 week block of coaching.

The SSP has agreed to fully fund NBG Level 1 and Level 2 coaching courses for both the apprentices, so that they have the opportunity to up-skill themselves to ensure employability at the end of the 12 month period. In return both trainee coaches will be supporting with the delivery of the School Games Level 1 & 2 competitions, the delivery of extra-curricular opportunities including the FAs new initiative TEAM Sixteen, Change 4 Life clubs, School Sport clubs and Energy clubs in primary & secondary schools.

They are also training and managing two Primary school football teams within the Bridgemary cluster, who are competing in the Gosport Primary School Football Association leagues and cups.

This is the first year that the SSP has offered a full time coaching placement to a college graduate. The SSP is currently reviewing the possibilities to link with St Vincent College to offer further placements and apprenticeships in 2014-15 and going through the Government Framework for apprenticeships.
