If you want to become a Physical Education teacher then this course will prepare you to work in schools and to deliver high quality lessons for all pupils. The aim of the physical education course is to develop thoughtful teachers who can respond effectively to the learning needs of young people in school by providing a balanced physical education programme. Completion of the course will award Qualified Teacher Status along with 60 credits towards a Masters.
You will learn to draw on the theoretical principles underpinning physical education, and how to use this knowledge in your teaching. You will contribute to the teaching of traditional activity areas of the wider range and content of the National Curriculum for Physical Education key stage 3 strategy as well as traditional examination PE courses within the 11-16 programme.
We aim to provide a range of experiences, including post 16 teaching.
Typical modules may include:
Observation of teaching, before undertaking ‘sheltered’ teaching activities, for example teaching parts of lessons or groups of pupils within a class
Progression to teaching single or short sequences of lessons
Further development through planned classroom activities
Development of teaching skills as you move to sustained sequences of lessons
Research in the University and school on the use of ICT in the teaching of your subject
