PE CatalYSTs

YST PE Catalysts
Working to raise the profile of secondary PE in their local areas to halt the marginalisation of the subject due to whole school pressures.
How we work - Networking - PE Catalysts

We are recruiting committed, passionate teachers of secondary PE who are able to advocate the impact of physical education on young people. We are primarily looking for innovative PE practitioners keen to share good practice that they use every day in their secondary core PE classes. We want to recruit an army of PE CatalYSTs who will work with us to raise the profile of our subject across their local area.

Why are PE CatalYSTs needed?
  • To refocus attention and energy back to core PE and the impact it can have on young people
  • To turn the tide against the marginalisation of the subject, and the pressures and restrictions placed upon it by recent educational reforms
  • Prepare the PE workforce for the increased standards in young people entering secondary school from primary.

Unfortunately there is no funding attached to this role, however, a PE CatalYST will receive professional development to support them in this role via two development days per academic year, as well as positioning themselves, their department and school on a local, regional and national footing. The role is initially for one year, in the first instance, however we are keen as an organisation to continue to grow and build the team of PE CatalYSTs beyond that.

The opportunity to become a PE CatalYST is only available to teachers at schools that are members of the Youth Sport Trust. To apply to become a PE CatalYST please complete the express of interest form.
