ukactive and Precor are hosting two seminars in London and Manchester, where an educational whitepaper entitled ‘Engaging Children in Physical Activity’ will be launched.
The seminars, tailored to the education sector and leisure operators, will highlight the best practice and solutions from schools, a range of activity providers and local communities in getting children more active.
They will also focus on the research and evidence regarding the benefits of physical activity for teenagers, and the best means of generating behavioural change in early years.
Precor marketing manager Jonathan Griffiths said: “With childhood obesity levels rising and the curriculum changing, schools and colleges are finding ways to incorporate physical activity ever more challenging.
“We recognise the importance of involving students and young people in health and fitness, so are excited to launch the report we commissioned in partnership with ukactive.
“The whitepaper and the seminars to accompany it, will help education and leisure establishments to understand how best to engage children and young people in physical activity and the wider benefits of cross-curricular learning, overall academic achievement and also engagement with the community.”
The seminars take place on Monday November 18 in Manchester and Wednesday November 20 in London.
