Course Description

If you have the desire to provide top-quality physical education, then we will help you explore the potential of PE as an educational medium. Our highly-rated PGCE course will give you the knowledge and skills to be an effective teacher, developing independent learning techniques and self-motivation that will be valuable throughout your career. You will look at the learning potential of a range of aesthetic, artistic, body management and body conditioning activities, helping you plan effective PE lessons for schools.

This programme will give you 60 credits towards an MA in Education, furthering your study with incredible ease. Our highly-committed and effective tutors will support you in studying two modules at masters level, reflecting the very high standards achieved by students on this course. You'll learn to articulate, defend and amend your personal view of the role of PE in primary school, and enjoy the support and excellent teaching and resources to allow you to advance into a successful career as a PE teacher.
