Professional Development

One of the four values that LaunchPad aspires to is lifelong learning. For that reason (and because we want you to keep your skills fresh and updated), we developed a series of professional development opportunities that you can access.

LaunchPad: Ignite!

For teachers, LaunchPad: Ignite! workshop provides teachers with the key competencies to be able to deliver gymnastics sessions in the new Australian Sports Commission's Sporting Schools program.

A 3-4 hour active workshop covering modules in Neuro-nastics (brain development and movement) and each of the Dominant Movement Patterns (DMPs). Using a framework of basic movement skills, this workshop aims to give teachers the knowledge and resources they need to deliver LaunchPad programs in schools. A great workshop for teachers who will be more prepared to scaffold their students’ learning through movement and deliver LaunchPad programs in their school environment. LaunchPad: Ignite! is a fun, active and thought-provoking workshop and will get you and your students moving!

LaunchPad: Zoom!

For current accredited, Intermediate Gymnastics coaches (any gymsport). LaunchPad: Zoom! is a 1.5 hour workshop that covers Neuro-nastics content and some important information on the LaunchPad philosophy, values and brand. LaunchPad: Zoom! offers additional benefits to coaches, such as resources and GA updating points.
