The BORN TO MOVE School Leadership Programme equips teachers with the knowledge and resources to facilitate student learning so they can instruct BORN TO MOVE. The BTM Leadership Programme enables students to use their leadership capabilities by providing live group movement activities for their school and the wider community. 

BORN TO MOVE is a movement experience choreographed and designed by youth for youth. The combination of modern music with movements such as dance, martial arts, plyometrics, strength, core, yoga and relaxation is the building blocks to inspire a life-long love of movement for youth. 

What will I learn during the Teacher Training and what is included? 

During the Teacher Training, teachers will learn the fundamentals of BORN TO MOVE and how facilitating the programme will look like through a 'student lens'. They will experience firsthand what they will be asking from their students in order to successfully implement the programme. 

BORN TO MOVE Leadership Programme includes: 

  • Teacher Training (2 Hours self-learning online + 4 Hours with BTM Trainers Online) 
  • Digital Resources with updated BTM Releases every 6 months  
  • 3 Follow-up Online opportunities for students post-training 
  • Unlimited ongoing support available via email/phone. 

What does a successful outcome look like? 

Your school will have a qualified team of BORN TO MOVE Leaders who regularly take their school through a live BTM class to support everyday health. You can extend the participants to include whānau and the wider community, with before or after-school sessions to promote the need for movement on a larger scale. 

BORN TO MOVE Leadership Programme is FREE 

** Only if schools meet the critical requirement of providing evidence of children learning/teaching the programme.
