Course summary

Course overview

Imagine helping children to be the very best they can be from the very start of their school life – both academically and physically – you can as a primary school teacher with a specialism in physical education.

We’ve designed our highly-rated PGCE General Primary with QTS (5-11): Physical Education to support your journey all the way from student through to achieving status as a newly-qualified teacher.

Learn all the knowledge of PGCE General Primary but with a pathway in PE, so that you can hone your pedagogy in this area to lead and manage PE in your primary school so that children don’t just get the best out of their learning, but help them to get fit and active too.

You’ll learn through theory and plenty of first-hand experience how to work within the National Curriculum framework, the concepts and inhibitions of PE, and confidently devise and deliver interesting lessons to engage young minds across a broad spectrum of subjects in primary school.

And, because our course has QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) built-in, you can apply for a position as a primary school teacher the minute you graduate.

Course summary

Over half the course will be spent working with children on assessed placement, with school-based enrichment activities alongside your university-based study. You'll take three placements across a variety of schools and settings, building a wealth of experience to help advance your future career.

We want to help develop students who are committed to becoming a good teacher, not just those with superior physical prowess. We welcome applications from across the activity spectrum, bringing a great range of experience to the teaching group that will help enhance everybody's learning.
