We love working with schools – playing games, sharing ideas and research into the benefits of active learning. Our Training, CPD and Support packages are proving very popular with schools across the UK and abroad. The results are tangible – a great use of the PE and Sport Premium Funding for Primary Schools.
Many forward-thinking school leaders are realising that our CPD sessions are great ways to implement the recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer and the Childhood Obesity Plan of Action.
According to the official website of the Olympic Movement: “Studies show that children who are physically fit are better at absorbing and retaining new information.”
However, in many schools, PE loses out in the drive to improve standards in English and Mathematics. In our CPD sessions, ‘Making Core Subjects Active, Relevant and Fun’ we will look at innovative opportunities to combine Mathematics and/or English with PE.
What is the Impact of our Staff Training and CPD?
By the end of the session, all participants will:
- understand how we can offer an active approach to Mathematics and English that is fun, engaging and enthuses children
- be able to create active sessions that develop core skills with our Learners;
- know new ways to reach the 30 minutes in school Obesity Plan activity target;
- be smiling.
Sessions are prepared and delivered by qualified Tagtiv8 teachers, based on the needs of your staff and learners.

What Can We Offer for Staff Training and CPD?
In addition to After School CPD Sessions, we run bespoke Half Day and Full Day Sessions to fit in with your School Improvement Plan. We love working with clusters of schools and trusts so that schools can collaborate on their active learning journeys.
We also offer longer term solutions – working with key staff over the course of a year or longer so that ‘Move & Learn’ approaches continue to grow within the school community.
We are part of Move & Learn, a movement of teachers and school leaders, who support schools with research and ideas.
Our team are happy to share ideas via Teach Meets as well as present at conferences and other events.
