This course is open to trainee teachers who wish to qualify to teach Physical Education at Key Stages 3 and 4. The course is run both in the University and in conjunction with local partnership schools.

Programme structure

This is a full-time, one year course that starts in early September and continues through to the end of June, with breaks over Christmas and in the Spring. The course incorporates periods of university-based and school-based work. The balance between school and university enables you to develop your subject knowledge whilst developing the skills required to play an effective role in the work of a school or college department.

This is achieved by a range of approaches that include practical workshops, seminars, lectures and demonstrations, fieldwork and micro-teaching activities, independent and group research and through reading and writing activities. Recent trends in teaching and learning approaches are emphasised including the application of information technology, and you will participate in the design of fieldwork, project work and assessment. We believe that this is best done by working from your own subject knowledge and skills while also having the ability to teach material from the sciences which lie beyond your specialism.
