Gymnastics NSW has aligned with the Department of Education to offer gymnastics courses specific for teachers who wish to develop their knowledge and competance in gymnastics. These courses cover the basics of fundamental movement as well as all the curriculum requirements for Gymnastics.
We currently offer 3 courses:
Fundamental Movement Course
This workshop has been specifically designed by Gymnastics Australia to help give teachers an understanding of fundamental movement and its relation to physical activity (including all sport, fitness and recreation activities) and brain development.
Primary and Secondary Teacher Courses
After completing this workshop, Teachers will be able to:
Provide a safe environment for their participants, including adequate physical preparation, in which to develop fundamental movement and gymnastic skills
Understand how movement is vital to mental and physical development and provide developmental opportunities for their participants through movement
Understand how movement can be utilised to develop learning and cross-curricular links
These workshops are very practical in nature, providing teachers with a teaching framework for daily physical activity which will enhance students’ fundamental motor skills relative to all sport and physical activity, as well as providing valuable links to brain development
