Areas of study

This course covers the national curriculum range of content for physical education.

The course also includes health-related exercise, the use of new and emerging technologies in physical education, thematic teaching and learning in physical education, inclusive practice in physical education and the teaching of accredited courses in physical education.

There are four strands to this course: subject study/subject education, education studies, school placements and professional development.

Course content is kept up to date with changes in local and national initiatives and legislation, so you can be confident that your working knowledge is based on current theory and practice.

The education studies strand gives you a thorough understanding of the learning process itself, including an appreciation of individual differences. The study of the principles and practices of learning and teaching is through both school and university settings, allowing you to develop practical competency supported by analytical skills. By the end of the course you will:

• refine your understanding of pedagogy, including an appreciation of current and emerging educational theories and debate
• understand how to use and adapt teaching, learning, management and assessment strategies in order to meet the varying needs of learners
• understand how the progress and wellbeing of learners is affected by different influences and know how to take account of the principles of equality, inclusion and diversity.

The subject study/subject education strand builds upon your existing expertise in your specialist subject and provides you with the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of the subject in the secondary school context. You will consider the learning and teaching strategies that are relevant to physical educaiton.

The subject education module is specifically related to teaching PE in school, while the subject study module enables you to take your subject specialist studies to an increased depth. You can earn 20 masters-level credits through the assessment for the subject study module.

Professional development is linked to all strands of the programme and is designed to enable you to evaluate critically and reflect on your learning to make improvements. You will be expected to gather and justify evidence of your achievements on a regular basis and develop and implement improvement plans.

Students use an e-portfolio to record their achievements and this is reviewed throughout the course. An action plan is used to support professional development during placements and makes up a significant part of the improvement planning process.

At the end of the course, the e-portfolio provides evidence that you have met the Teachers’ Standards for the award of Qualified Teacher Status.

[[ABOUT MA Movement: Directing and Teaching ]]
Central has a long-standing and well-recognised place for the dissemination of our actor movement disciplines within the British theatre scene. This pioneering course is the first of its kind in Europe and is aimed at performance and movement practitioners interested in movement teaching and movement directing of the actor.

Students may be actors or dancers who want to diversify their skills and knowledge, people who work with actors (a dance or Movement teacher, or a theatre director with a movement history), or practitioners (from an allied field of sport/holistic practice), who want to enhance their understanding of various practical/theoretical interfaces regarding movement in contemporary performance.

The course offers specialist, vocational teaching in the field of movement for actors, production practice for movement directors and bespoke movement placements at Central and in other professional theatre settings, such as other conservatoires or theatre, opera, or film organisations (both in Britain and internationally).

Students are given the opportunity to develop their own practice as movement specialists according to their interests in this emergent and innovative field, and will undertake potentially ground-breaking research into movement. They will be taught by
tutors who are current professional practitioners in their field of movement pedagogy, movement direction and movement research.

ASSESSMENT

This is through a range of methods, including work on practical projects, written assignments and teaching practice placements. In the last term students work independently to complete their specialist enquiry, arising from work undertaken during the course.

The MA by Research (Physical Education and Physical Activity) is a brand new and exciting opportunity for you to undertake a supervised programme of independent study and practice in a structured and supportive environment within the field of Physical Education, and or Physical Activity. The Masters by Research sits within the Directorate of Physical Education, within the School of Childhood and Education Sciences, which forms part of the Faculty of Education.

To support your independent study, there are research methods sessions run by the Graduate School throughout the year, and you will also be invited to research theme group meetings and events that are held within the Faculty of Education. There are eight research theme groups that will also support and guide you through your studies. These include: Holistic Early Learning and Development; Curriculum, Creativity and Innovation; Professional Organisational and Leadership Development; Pedagogy and Identity; Ecopedagogy; Autobiography and Narrative; Inclusion, Equalities and Social Justice and Post Secular Values and the Sacred. It is possible to complete the MA by Research either part-time (two years) or full-time (one year).

Course detail

The title of the MA by Research (Physical Education and Physical Activity), is intentionally very broad to allow you to specialise in an area in which you are particularly interested.

The project may develop from recent undergraduate work or from an aspect of your current employment which you wish to unpick, extend or challenge, for example in the areas of Physical Education, Physical Education and Sport Sciences, Physical Activity, or Primary Physical Education or Coaching.

You will be supported through regular tutorials from your specialist supervisor, as well as by a second supervisor, who will bring knowledge and expertise in research methodologies.

The supervisor's role would be to help you select the appropriate research method, to support you in devising and producing the project and to aid you in setting this this within the critical framework of Physical Education, and or Physical Activity.

Assessment

The programme is assessed through the submission of a piece of academic writing between 25,000 and 30,000 words in length. There are no examinations, including oral examinations. You will meet regularly with first supervisor, virtually or physically and will present your work in progress to the full Supervisory Panel half way through your registration period. Following advice from the Panel you will complete your final dissertation submission.

What can I do next?

The programme leads to the award of an MA by Research, which is a significant qualification in its own right, but you could also continue ultimately on to PhD or EdD programmes. The research writing skills you will gain and your expert knowledge you will develop in your research area, will enhance your employability and can provide invaluable grounding for continuing and extending your careers in Physical Education and Physical Activity settings.

The University of Brighton is one of the UK's largest teacher training universities, rated ‘outstanding’ in our last Ofsted inspection.

This course leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for the 11–16 age range which enables you to be employed as a qualified teacher in secondary schools in England and Wales. The course also offers enrichment opportunities to teach the 16–18 age phase.

The programme would be suitable if you have graduated with a good honours degree or equivalent in dance.

Studying with us, you will have access to excellent resources and will gain practical experience in two schools. You will be mentored by a successful teaching team with an outstanding national reputation and comprehensive research profile that informs course content.

Specialising in dance at PGCE level means that you will be able to take a role in the leadership and development of this subject area throughout your career.

Students on this course can choose to progress to one of our Education MAs after completing the PGCE.

Course structure

Two-thirds of your year will be spent teaching, under supervision, in schools. Our tutors and mentors will advise and support you throughout each placement. You will receive comprehensive feedback during this time, enabling you to see what you are doing well and where you might need to improve.

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. You will benefit from undertaking two placements in two schools or colleges, with the opportunity to visit additional schools or colleges as part of the peer observation programme.

We have excellent multimedia training materials, giving you the opportunity to develop your confidence and competence in the use of ICT. Our multimedia suites are regularly updated to keep up with technological advancements in classroom teaching provision.

Areas of study

There are four strands to this course: subject study/subject education, education studies, school placements and professional development.

Dance addresses the development of pupils' performance, choreographic and appreciation skills. The demands of examination syllabuses are studied in parallel with practical experience.

Course content is kept up to date with changes in local and national initiatives and legislation, so you will be confident that your working knowledge is based on current theory and practice.

The subject study/subject education strand builds upon your existing expertise in dance and provides you with the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of dance in the secondary school context. You will consider the learning and teaching strategies that are relevant to the specialist subject.

The subject education module is specifically related to teaching the specialist subject in school while the subject study module enables you to take your subject specialist studies to an increased depth. You can earn 20 masters-level credits through the assessment for the subject study module.

The education studies strand will give you a thorough understanding of the learning process itself, including an appreciation of individual differences. The study of the principles and practices of learning and teaching is through both school and university settings, allowing you to develop practical competences, supported by analytical skills. By the end of the course you will:

• refine your understanding of pedagogy, including an appreciation of current and emerging educational theories and debate
• understand how to use and adapt a range of teaching, learning, management and assessment strategies in order to meet the varying needs of learners
• understand how the progress and well-being of learners is affected by a range of influences and know how to take account of the principles of equality, inclusion and diversity.

Professional development is intrinsically linked to all key strands of the programme and is designed to enable you to evaluate critically and reflect upon your learning in order to make improvements. You will be expected to gather and justify evidence of your achievements on a regular basis and develop and implement improvement plans.

Students use an e-portfolio to record their achievements and this is reviewed throughout the course. An action plan is used to support professional development during placements and makes up a significant part of the improvement planning process.

At the end of the course, the e-portfolio provides evidence that you have met the Teachers’ Standards for the award of Qualified Teacher Status.

Placements

Ofsted identify our approach to training in schools as a key strength of this course, with an excellent balance between university tuition and school-based training.

You will spend a minimum of 120 days on school-based activities, with your training shared between the university and the partner school.

Your school-based training will include observing teachers, working with individual pupils and groups of pupils, team teaching and independent teaching. Your training will also entail completing specific subject tasks and developing your knowledge of school policy and effective practices.

You will maintain a professional training portfolio and be supported to review your work critically and analytically as well as to set appropriately challenging targets. We will also develop an action plan with you to identify strengths, development needs and actions, so that your practice is continually developing.
