The PGCE: Secondary Physical Education is a partnership programme. The majority of your time will be spent in schools observing, planning and delivering teaching and learning, considering how the theory and the practice link together and, of course, working with children in classroom settings.
You will be studying in a diverse community of trainees from a range of different subjects as well as studying alongside fellow PE trainees.

The PGCE Secondary Physical Education programme is designed to meet the Standards required for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and to develop specialist secondary teachers in PE.

It aims to do this in the context of our Secondary Partnership schools many of which are situated in east London where skills of educating children in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual urban environment are paramount.

Many themes such as equal opportunities, bilingualism, meeting the needs of children with special educational needs etc. underpin the taught programme.
The subject studies elements of the programme focus on teaching PE as a curriculum subject. These sessions aim to:
• Provide an introduction to PE as a curriculum subject.
• Enable you to develop high levels of teaching skills and classroom management, as well as the capacity for reflection and further professional development.
• To offer theoretical perspectives on the principles of syllabus design and evaluation, and the assessment and recording of children’s progress in both classroom and workshop situations.
• To provide knowledge and understanding of the National Curriculum and the framework of statutory requirements.


Overall the programme aims to produce effective teachers who are able to operate as reflective practitioners. To fit this description you should:
• develop your knowledge, skills and understanding of what it means to be a professional in school
• engage in practical and theoretical enquiry as a key element in your development as teachers. Whereby you are expected to:
• be able to critically review, using a range of research and scholastic skills, a systematic and coherent body of knowledge related to education and subject pedagogy
• be able to evaluate critically new information, concepts and evidence from a range of sources
• be able to exercise appropriate judgment, by applying appropriate diagnostic and creative skills, in a range of situations
• be able to accept accountability for determining and achieving personal and/or group outcomes by reflecting on and taking responsibility for your own professional development
• develop your ability to read and write critically at Masters level

Course in brief

This course prepares graduates to teach in secondary schools. As well as gaining a PGCE, students are assessed against the national standards in order to be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Physical Education covers the six National Curriculum study areas of athletic activities, dance, games, gymnastic activities, outdoor and adventure activities, and swimming. The course also includes health-related exercise and the teaching of accredited courses in physical education which both constitute part of the repertoire of skills that the contemporary physical education teacher must possess.

The opportunity to undertake masters level study within the course facilitates progression to an MA Education award after completion of the PGCE.

Course structure

The course comprises four strands: subject study/subject education, education studies, placements and professional development
The subject study/subject education strand builds upon existing subject expertise and provides students with the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of the specialist subject in the secondary school context, allowing them to formulate their own rationale for teaching. Students consider pedagogical issues within curriculum development, and the learning and teaching strategies pertinent to the specialist subject, regularly reflecting upon, analysing, recording and evaluating their own learning experience. Students have the opportunity to develop a creative and constructively critical approach towards innovation within their specialism, and the capacity to improve practice.
The Education Studies strand is common to all subject routes of the course and takes place both at the university and while on placement as a means of enabling students to develop practical competences supported by relevant, analytical skills.
Teaching under supervision, on placement, occupies approximately two-thirds of the course. The university works in partnership with schools and colleges to provide a high quality programme of support ensuring a sound relationship between theory and practice. There are two placements in two different schools/colleges with the opportunity to visit further schools/colleges as part of the 'Peer Observation' programme.

Professional Development is linked explicitly to all strands of the course and is designed to enable students to evaluate critically and reflect upon their learning in order to make improvements. Students are expected to gather and justify evidence of their achievements on a regular basis and, in the light of this, develop and implement improvement plans.
Career prospects are excellent: most gain their first teaching posts in secondary schools as soon as they qualify.

Physical Education is just as important as academic study. Through promoting positive attitudes to exercise and healthy lifestyles, you'll help children remain in top condition at school and throughout life. We offer everything you need to make it as a successful PE teacher, helping children improve their physical performance in fun and creative ways. If you have a genuine desire to teach, a commitment and enthusiasm for working with adolescents, and a love of physical education and school sport, we look forward to working with you.

You'll help contribute to the development of problem-solving skills and self-esteem in today's youth, enhancing their physical confidence and abilities. We believe that physical activity should be combined with the cognitive processes involved in making decisions and selecting, refining, evaluating and adapting skills and movements. If you share these values and beliefs, then take the first step towards a future as a successful PE teacher inspiring the athletes of tomorrow.

Course outline

You'll experiment with a range of teaching styles and strategies, and while you may bring an expertise to one activity area, you'll learn to teach all six key activities with confidence. You will learn about the physical education curriculum, from the framework provided by the National Curriculum through to the individual lesson plans that teachers use to support learning in their classrooms. Sessions in university support you in finding out how to use ICT effectively in your lessons, how to mark books and assess work, and how the new Key Stage 3 and 4 curriculum is structured.
