19KEC508 Y-PATH PE for ME (for PE Teachers only)

What is Y-PATH PE 4 ME?

Y-PATH (Youth Physical Activity Towards Health) PE 4 ME is a junior cycle post-primary programme which aims to improve physical activity among children and young people through the physical education (PE) module in the school curriculum. The programme is bought to you as a result of a collaboration between the Irish Heart Foundation and Dublin City University.

What is involved in the programme?

The programme is available only to PE teachers. There are two parts to the Y-PATH PE 4 ME programme:

           A 1-hour online course on the Irish Heart Foundation website www.irishheart.ie which must be completed by the teacher before attending the workshop

          A 3-hour face-to-face evening workshop held in Education Centres nationally 

Teachers will then have the ability to implement the Y-PATH PE 4 ME programme into their PE classes. Teachers will be given a Y-PATH resource pack with lesson plans, posters, student journals, as well as access to an online teacher’s portal containing digital resources to assist with lessons.

How much does it cost?

The workshop is completely free.
