Coaches in schools

As an organisation, England Handball does not place coaches into schools. If you need a coach, please look at the Coach Finder. If you have an opportunity you would like to advertise, please fill in the Proforma on the Opportunities Page and return it to coachingadmin@englandhandball.com and we will post it on the website. 

This page provides course information for teachers.  Generally the courses we run for schools are closed courses, so they will not be advertised on the Course Finder. 

Please note:       

  • To book on a course please download the Booking Form and send it to the Coaching Administrator who will book the course for you.
  • If you want to book a course for your school and then invite other schools to take part in the course this is fine; the financial arrangements will need to be sorted between yourselves.  
  • If you need courses tailoring to GCSE specifications, please can you let us know at the booking stage and provide us with a copy of the relevant examining board’s course specification.  
  • Occasionally, England Handball may advertise a Teachers’ Course on the Course Finder for individual teachers to book onto.  If no courses are showing, no courses are scheduled.
