what VTA Offers
Having extensive classroom experience, covering all aspects of the curriculum, VTA offers a range of workshops to suit your school and its values. With a wealth of experience teaching Physical Education across the primary phase and delivering weekly Values lessons to reflect school SEMH objectives, VTA can offer a training package to suit your school. All workshops provided will encourage active participation for all pupils, help to instil core values and teach them some basics of self defence.
VTA offers bespoke as well as 'Off the Shelf' workshops to cater for specific needs of individual schools. Our basic (and most popular workshop) teaches children values (respect, courage and trust) via basic karate techniques. These workshops are ideal as taster sessions to engage pupils in physical activity, teaches them some basic self-defence techniques, values and MFL (Japanese), as well as meeting some of the Literacy (Speaking and Listening objectives). ALL of the VTA workshops include elements of Mindfulness practice, which can be continued in the classroom afterwards. These workshops can be run in small or large schools, and session times can be from twenty minutes up to an hour (depending on number of sessions required).
VTA offers full and half day sessions, allowing small and large schools the opportunity to engage with us to deliver Karate Values workshops.
