LJMU Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity Network (PESSPA)

Working to connect, share and reflect together

About the PESSPA Network

The LJMU Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity Network aims to connect PE teachers and sport coaches working in schools with staff and students across the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences programmes. We welcome all staff and students to join the professional learning community regardless of career stage and believe that involvement can support and enhance practice for all.

We recognise and value the commitment of schools and other various organisations and their support in providing work based learning placement opportunities for our students. We believe that membership of the network can provide further support and collaborative opportunities to extend these relations.

Network strands

The network community consists of four strands. Each strand is supported by a committed and experienced team of individuals who will be able to provide opportunities, host events and share with you the range of innovative work in PE, school sport and physical activity.
