Course summary

This course aims to develop dynamic and inspiring teachers of Physical Education, equipped with the skills required to adapt teaching to the needs of today’s students. You will learn to become a reflective practitioner, with an ability to develop and teach an exciting and innovative Physical Education curriculum, appropriate for Secondary School students. As part of our enrichment offer, you will experience a number of alternate activities, which will engage both male and female students. In addition, we have developed strong links with the Duke of Edinburgh organisation and you will be offered the opportunity to gain a variety of qualifications which are viewed highly by school leaders. You can look forward to a programme which engages with partner schools and encourages staff to contribute their particular areas of strength. You may work with Special School Leaders, Disability Organisations, The Football Association or Assessment Officers to mention a few. This ensures we offer a current and relevant programme supported by partner schools.

During your training you will focus on the various approaches and pedagogies for Physical Education, emphasising the application of theory to practice. A sequence of micro-teaching experiences allow you to develop and share, with peers, your understanding of learning and teaching strategies that support effective practice in the classroom. You will explore signature pedagogies such as questioning, demonstration and modelling for our subject. Sessions will help to deepen your understanding of the role and nature of Physical Education in the curriculum and your own personal philosophy for teaching. You will explore the importance of your subject in the holistic development of young people and the appreciation of an active lifestyle to engender an ethos of ‘physical activity for life.’ A focus on the concept of physical literacy encourages you to be critical of what and how you teach, to ensure that students continue to be physically active after leaving school. These sessions will help you identify strategies to support how children learn in Physical Education.

The subject knowledge sessions focus on areas of weakness to help you gain knowledge and confidence to teach a range of activities across the curriculum. Audits to determine the exact content of the programme ensure that a course suitable for each year’s cohort can be delivered and that trainees thoroughly enjoy these ‘active sessions’. Misconceptions are addressed and trainees are encouraged to experiment with new and alternative pedagogies, to help them be confident to step out of their comfort zone and take risks.
