Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Designed for those with a desire to understand and enhance physical education and sporting experiences for young people, this course will provide the ideal stepping stone for recent graduates wishing to extend or diversify their knowledge, as well as current practitioners working in schools or within the field of youth sport.

You will build a critical understanding of contemporary practice and learn to apply different models and theories to develop your expertise in creating inclusive physical education and youth sport settings.

By exploring the diversity of young people’s experiences of PE and youth sport, you will be well positioned to promote lifelong engagement in physical activity to a range of individuals and communities, which will benefit society as a whole.

This course also offers progression onto further study, for example, PGCE or School Direct places or onto PhD research.

The Carnegie School of Sport at Leeds Beckett University has delivered high-quality sport and physical education courses for more than 80 years. As a student, you will be taught by a small team of academics internationally renowned in their field.

With small group delivery, a personal tutorial system, and strong study skill support, this course will provide a cohesive and effective learning environment. During your studies, a range of option modules will enable you to cater the course to your personal and professional development goals.

We have good links with schools and youth sport organisations to help you apply your learning. You will also have access to a range of sports and recreation clubs and societies and coaching courses through our Sport and Active Lifestyles Team. You can choose to study full-time for one year or part-time over two years. To suit your full-time work schedule, we offer the part-time option typically across two evenings from 5-7pm.

This course can be studied as an MA, PG Dip or PG Cert.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
