Courses for Teachers

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. All courses are fully practical.

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. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Coaching Administrator at  coachingadmin@englandhandball.com  or by telephone:  01925 246482
