Why Choose Beth Tweddle Curriculum?
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Beth Tweddle Gymnastics is a valuable CPD opportunity for teachers. Running over either a full term or a full year, your pupils will have a great gymnastics experience whilst your teachers receive practical training. All our CPD is covered by Level 2 Qualified Coaches, where they will help teachers to develop their understanding of how to run a gymnastics session as well as identifying how to engage all children, regardless of ability - as we all know that each child develops in different ways.
We have listened to your feedback, so we understand many teachers lack confidence coaching gymnastics sessions. Therefore, during our sessions coaches will outline how a session is structured, how to support the children during various skills and most importantly… how to deliver the sessions safely!
For schools, the primary benefit of CPD is ensuring that standards across the workforce are high and consistent. Having your teachers undertake CPD, whether concurrently or over a period of time, allows for the sharing of best practice and support. CPD also contributes to maximising staff potential, improves staff moral and provides a useful benchmark for annual appraisals.

Each school will be assigned a Regional Coordinator to help oversee and ensure that your school is receiving the best possible experience from the programmes and working towards competitions and displays should your school desire.
We provide all in-depth session plans for each year group taught. This is a reference point and to aid teachers in delivering sessions in the future.
In Ofsted’s 2018 report, Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman noted:
“Commonly, when schools had offered specialist training on specific physical activities (such as gymnastics, swimming and dance), this had increased teachers’ confidence to teach. Some schools reported that teachers being more knowledgeable had increased take-up of that sport.”
Beth Tweddle National Curriculum has been recognised by Ofsted, stating that;
“Good use has been made of government funding to develop sport and physical education with Olympic medallist Beth Tweddle’s programme visiting the school. Pupils are more involved in competitive sport and competitions than previously and their sporting skills have improved."
Our Programme Is Great Fun!
Rewards, badges, certificates and progress charts are just some of the ways Beth Tweddle Gymnastics ensure your pupils are recognised for all of their efforts and have the best experience possible!
