A training course organised and sponsored by Link Ethiopia aids local PE teachers to consider new approaches and ideas when teaching the subject.
The training was attended by 11 PE teachers from a variety of schools in the Bishoftu regions and incorporated theoretical and practical activities to help enhance PE lessons. Topics that were covered on the day included communication skills, different ways of managing groups in practical situations, safety in physical education and sport, and adapting physical activities to suit the abilities and needs of different learners and group sizes.
The teachers were extremely pleased with the sessions with one stating:
“This training was really useful in helping me to decide what to teach, to which groups, when and why. I found this really helpful.”
The helps continues through follow up sessions, it is hoped that this will have a positive impact on teaching and learning of sports and physical education in all of the schools involved.
