Abstract

Physical Literacy (PL) is a key consideration in the Physical Activity (PA) and learning landscape. Facilitating PL through practitioner education has emerged as a viable avenue to promote PL and subsequently PA in young people. This spoken presentation presents the first findings from an evaluative project exploring a practitioner education programme forced on PL called Boing. Current knowledge and confidence of practitioner to deliver is poor across the UK. However, workshop training was found to be effective at improving knowledge, confidence and attitude. Further research is required to established how this translates into the practitioners practice.
