The Government has targeted the presence of a Physical Education specialist in every primary school as part of a drive to increase healthy life styles.

The PGCE Primary Physical Education Specialist with QTS is a school-led programme which combines on-campus study with training in placement schools and settings.

You will train to teach across the 5-11 age range in Key Stages 1 and 2 and achieve the Teachers’ Standards. The training experience is designed to fully prepare you for your first year as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT).

During the programme, you will study all of the National Curriculum subjects and you will specialise in Physical Education in great depth. You will qualify as a Primary teacher who will also be able to bring a passion for Physical Education and excellent Physical Education subject knowledge to a first teaching post.

Successful completion of this PGCE will lay the foundations for you to become a leader in Physical Education, generating enthusiasm for Physical Education amongst children, and modelling and leading others in the development of enriching, engaging and challenging lessons.

What will I study?

The programme consists of four main elements.

- Academic and Professional Development – gaining knowledge of how children learn and how their needs differ, you will develop the core skills of planning, assessment, teaching and classroom management. You will also gain an understanding of the education system, consider the wider professional role of a teacher, and learn how to reflect upon and take responsibility for your professional development;

- Curriculum Subject Knowledge – working with expert tutors, you will acquire essential subject knowledge for the Primary National Curriculum. Exploring a range of teaching methods, including the use of ‘new’ technologies, you will be guided in how to provide children with stimulating, imaginative and effective learning experiences;

- Specialism – choosing Physical Education as your specialism will allow you to enhance and deepen your own knowledge of the subject, undertake action research projects in school, and further your knowledge and understanding of how Physical Education is taught and led in school. You will also develop a clear understanding of the needs of children who do not always have the love of physical education you may have, gaining an understanding of how to teach them effectively and give them the confidence to progress;

- Weekend Conferences – six weekend conferences provide an opportunity for deeper study of aspects of Primary Physical Education, including international and historical perspectives and research from the forefront of the subject.

How will I study?

A combination of seminars, tutorials and weekend conferences, together with practical, work-based learning in the classroom will give you the knowledge and skills you need to become an excellent teacher. A substantial amount of face-to-face contact time with specialist tutors will be facilitated across all Primary National Curriculum subjects. You will be supported by online and distance learning materials and encouraged to develop key skills, including the use of technology, to support your own learning.

You will also spend a significant amount of time in schools in a variety of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes during the programme. Over the length of the PGCE, you will progress from teaching small groups with a partner to teaching a full class on your own as you become more confident in the classroom. There are also frequent opportunities to observe outstanding teachers in action and learn from high quality training in schools.

Undertaking a range of differentiated training experiences that are closely linked to your individual targets, you will develop your role as a classroom teacher and assume greater responsibility for the class as you move through the programme.

How will I be assessed?

A balanced combination of coursework and observed classroom experience will be assessed against the Teachers’ Standards. You will also complete rigorous subject knowledge audits and checks to ensure you have outstanding subject knowledge.

Who will be teaching me?

You will be taught by expert practitioners including teachers who are specialists in Physical Education and primary education and who will model high quality practice to enable you to develop your own teaching style.

What are my career prospects?

Successful completion of this programme will allow you to gain a recommendation for QTS and progress into employment as a Newly Qualified Teacher in a primary school.

Our graduates obtain work in schools across the UK and abroad and we offer excellent support to help you gain your first teaching post. You will have an ability to teach in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 in primary schools, a strong knowledge of primary education, excellent Physical Education subject knowledge and pedagogy, as well as outstanding classroom skills, so that you meet and exceed the national standards for Qualified Teacher Status.

You will also have a thorough understanding of how to teach the primary curriculum in creative ways that excite and stimulate children whilst ensuring that they make good progress. In addition, you will have a deep knowledge of Physical Education and be well placed to take a leadership role in school.

We will also give you the skills to confidently manage classes with wide differences in ability. You will be able to devise lessons that develop from personalised activities to games that involve and stimulate your entire class.

Due to the nature of PE, you will not always be able to run your classes outdoors. We will also develop your organisational skills so that you will be able to plan your lessons and teach effectively regardless of the weather.

Your training will also develop your understanding of how PE can be used to motivate and strengthen learning in your pupils beyond the physical benefits of sport.

You can choose from two different training models.

University-led: You will develop your theoretical knowledge at our Headingley Campus, which offers a superb learning environment, modern facilities and excellent resources. Your learning will be informed by the very latest research and the expertise of our supportive teaching staff. We will organise your extensive school placements so you can apply your knowledge in a classroom setting and your placements will be timetabled to fit with your taught seminars on campus.

School Direct: For the vast majority of your course, you will be based in your provider school or schools, learning on the job while being supported by experienced teachers and mentors. You will attend our Headingley Campus one day a week (usually a Friday) for key module seminars.

The PGCE Secondary is the first phase of a career-long process of personal and professional development, which will equip you to become a secondary school teacher. Read more

The PGCE Secondary is the first phase of a career-long process of personal and professional development, which will equip you to become a secondary school teacher. The PGCE Secondary is a course in Initial Teacher Training which is accredited by the DfE, the successful completion of which will accord you Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Our course has recently been inspected by Ofsted which resulted in an “Outstanding” grading for all aspects of our provision. 

Students who have successfully completed the PGCE at Durham in the previous academic year have the option to use 90 credits they have accredited towards a part time MA Education. These students only need to do the core modules, Education Enquiry and the Dissertation over 2 years, to complete the programme. 

Subject pedagogy is explored in curriculum groups, examining techniques for making each subject accessible and stimulating in a classroom environment.

Integrated into the Course are university sessions, school experiences and OAA activities. An undoubted strength of the Course is the excellent partnership that exists between the university and schools. The course has been devised by the University Tutor and Physical Education specialists in local schools to prepare you to teach Physical Education to the full secondary age and ability range.

Whilst in University you will follow a structured PE programme which will involve sessions reflecting good practice. Sessions, therefore, feature discussion, collaborative work, experiential learning, the examination and analysis of materials but especially the active participation of members of the group. There will be an obvious focus on all PE activity areas (games, gymnastic activities, dance, athletic activities, swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities) throughout the course.

The design of the PE course also takes into account the simultaneous delivery of the PI lectures programme. It therefore complements and reinforces the generic and subject specific principles, skills and techniques required of the competent teacher. Through critical reflection on current teaching practices, as well as your own teaching and research, you will be given the opportunity to develop into a more effective PE teacher, progressively improving the quality of your preparation and classroom practice, to become a physical educationalist for the future.

As part of your course you will complete 3 Teaching placements (one of which you will arrange yourself) in a variety of local schools. This will comprise a minimum of 120 days to meet the minimum requirement for QTS.

Structure

The course is organised as three modules:

  • Professional Issues in school based education
  • Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum
  • Self-directed Study

The Professional Issues in School Based Education relates to the Teacher Standards and is delivered in two parts, prior to each of the two extended teaching practices. The teaching is related to those classroom-based issues such as the psychology of learning, the law, curriculum groups, examining techniques for making each subject accessible and stimulating in a classroom environment and is followed up in subject groups and during school placements The block practices in the Autumn and Spring allow for practical opportunities for full professional development where there is a progression from observation, structured activities and group work to whole class work.

Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum and Self Directed Study are studied at Masters Level. The Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum Module draws on the international research expertise within the School of Education enabling student teachers to engage critically in issues relevant to the classroom and school, particularly those that impact on the success of children as learners. The Self Directed Study module draws on students’ experience during weekly visits to schools and their own small scale action research, and links this to critical engagement with published educational research.

These Masters modules provide an opportunity to explore, in a more theoretical way, the issues to do with teaching and learning through lectures and mixed subject and phase seminar groups taught as a conference week usually after Christmas. In addition to covering Teacher standards these modules will enable assessment work to be carried out for the award of PGCE.

On successful completion of the course, student teachers will have 90 credits and QTS.

Career Opportunities

Career opportunities in education are wide and include classroom teaching, educational leadership and management, administration and policy development.

How will I be taught?

Workshops, seminars, lectures and specialist facilities across our faculties encourage the exploration of ideas, in a wide variety of practice-based disciplines.

Modules focus on the professional and theoretical contexts of process and/or performance of: drama, fine art, dance, music, and sport and PE, including research methods; they also encourage an interrogation of personal and peer practice. The modules mostly run as weekend schools on Friday evening and all day Saturday.

Contact hours are two hours on Fridays and six and a half hours on Saturdays.

How will I be assessed?

The MA in Creative Practices in Education defines assessment as a process that appraises an individual’s knowledge, understanding, abilities or skills. The course assesses not only academic skills but also other skills and competencies, including developing advanced skills as creative practitioners, performers, performance makers and visual artists.

The range of assessment approaches includes a combination of practical and written assessments. Assessment methods across the MA have been selected to enable students to develop their knowledge and skills of creative professional practice using an appropriate critical and analytical framework within which to situate and evaluate their own concepts and creative and professional practice.

The courses were deemed to be outstanding for both ‘overall effectiveness’ and the ‘capacity for further improvement and/or sustaining overall quality’ following the inspection, which was conducted in March 2011.

Career Opportunities

Course Content

The PGCE Primary programme runs over three school terms from September to July, with taught sessions five days a week. The programme structure incorporates a balance of learning experiences through a mixture of University, school and educational settings which will support you on your learning journey.

You will spend 80 days on campus and 120 in school-based training. Teaching and learning is presented and assessed through a variety of formats including essays, a portfolio of evidence, audits and visual presentations. Modules for Master's support your development across all areas.

Through this programme you will develop the skills and experience necessary to be a primary teacher. You will attend subject specific sessions, lectures and seminars designed to develop awareness and understanding of general professional issues, the content of the National Curriculum and practical issues such as lesson planning and assessment.

You will be supported to develop your knowledge and understanding of the school curriculum and to apply your pedagogic and subject knowledge creatively in preparation for your role as a future leader of learning. You will also engage with relevant research literature and develop the skills of a reflective practitioner in the Master's modules.

In addition, Physical Education is also a strength of the PGCE due the facilities and expertise of the staff, which provides opportunities for students to extend their understanding in this area. Modules are provided in non-core subjects of the national curriculum with additional time given to ideas of curriculum innovation and cross-curricular teaching.

Important current educational initiatives and changes also form an important part of the programme. Professional Studies underpins your learning and is dedicated to exploring the core pedagogical skills you require in practice, alongside key issues of equality, inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

All modules work in cooperation and the Master's modules allow for a deeper understanding of teaching and learning.
