Affordances for Movement: Using Your Environment for PE
Evidence demonstrates the enormous benefits for mental and physical health that come from being active outdoors and from engaging with one's surroundings. Parkour Generations' programmes teach you how to identify what movement and exercises possibilities are afforded to us by the environment, built structures and natural architecture.

Young people have a natural desire to explore the world around them and apply their physicality to it. Physical education should embrace this desire and utilise it to encourage movement and activity, and to develop an affinity between young people and their environment. School grounds typically provide endless opportunities for movement activities, games and challenges, and with the right training you will be able to guide sessions outdoors safely, smoothly and productively.

An added benefit is the development of respect for their environment among young people, as well as adaptability, resilience and creativity.

Going Beyond Your Job Role - The Importance of Connectedness
Do you ever hear the words “PE is just an extra recess.” or “Anyone can teach PE.”? PE Teachers tend to be typecast into the Jock or Sportsperson + Coach role at most schools.

Carlos and Mel would like to invite you to consider what life might look like in your school with some other non-sport options and taking action in to create programs, activities, community etc. See examples of how you can apply all those skills and passions you have outside of you job role and learn how easy it can be to establish yourself as a leader in your school.

PE teachers have multiple skill sets that could set you on a different course of action and open up multiple opportunities to grow professionally including working with your community (school, region, online), building relationships with parents and being involved and/or leading school initiatives!
