With KICK moving national in 2021, we are committed to developing new leaders in sports ministry across the country through our latest Internship Programme. The KICK Internship Coaching School (KICS) is a 2-year bespoke programme which enables interns to be fully competent and job ready to deliver within Physical Education/Dance, Mentoring and Chaplaincy KICK contracts.
KICK interns will have a certain amount of learning time, shadowing and delivery time each week with the concept of paid independent delivery growing more as the programme develops. All Interns will be placed on the Diploma in Education and Teaching course to ensure they not only have extensive teaching experience but also complete with a teaching qualification recognised nationally and the direct step below QTLS. Interns will also have intensive internal training and placed on a minimum of one accredited sporting qualifications. Qualifications are separated into the themes and all have a relevance to the working job and requires self-study, practical or written exams which will be internally assessed and verified by the Quality team.
The Interns week will consist of 4 days of delivery and one day of study and lectures. The day of study will be around our themes that have been chosen to optimise the development of the interns on the programme.
