This one-day course is designed to introduce sports and PE  teachers to the fundamental concepts and training principles of parkour/freerunning for use as part of a physical education class in a managed school setting. It serves as an introduction, and enables a sports teacher to initiate basic elements of parkour/freerunning training within the school environment.

The course is built around the principles of Discovery, Challenge and Play. Spotting, use of equipment, and health & safety are concepts taught throughout the course, as well as teaching styles encouraging student-centred learning and process-driven approaches. Participants will engage in physical exercises, sample drills, games and teaching practice. 

There will also be a discussion of suitable spaces and equipment for both indoor and outdoor spaces.
