The BWF is proud to be part of the newly launched Physical Education (PE) course of the International Sport Schools Federation (ISF). The course will be conducted in a virtual format, on the ISF’s Academy platform from 15 to 17 July 2023, and will provide International Certification for Physical Education Teachers worldwide.
The BWF encourages Member Associations to pass this information to their network of Schools and Physical Education teachers/educators. This course is relevant to Member Associations who have their own badminton school’s badminton programme or an established Shuttle Time programme.
We also recommend that Member Associations actively collaborate with their National Sports School Associations for a coordinated approach in developing badminton, Para badminton and AirBadminton at school level.
ISF Academy – Engaging Physical Education course
The SF Academy’s ‘Engaging Physical Education’ course has been developed exclusively for new and experienced PE Teachers who are aiming to upscale their knowledge at the international level. PE teachers will have the opportunity to receive theoretical and practical educational content to better engage young people in Physical Education while strengthening their knowledge of safeguarding children at school.
