Course summary

The Government has targeted the presence of a physical education specialist in every primary school as part of a drive to increase healthy lifestyles.

This PGCE provides you with a high-quality initial teacher education experience. It will prepare you to teach the whole national curriculum across the 5-11 age range in key stages 1 and 2 while developing a specific specialism in primary physical education. Spending a significant amount of time undertaking professional practice placements in schools and other educational settings, you will be supported in meeting the Teachers’ Standards, gaining the professional skills, knowledge, understanding and attitudes necessary for a successful two-year induction as an early career teacher.

Graduating as a primary physical education specialist, you will model excellent practice and be ready to lead colleagues in the development of enriching, engaging and challenging PE lessons which will inspire and enthuse children.

Career Prospects

This PGCE is accredited by the Department for Education. Successful completion of the programme will enable you to gain recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). You will be well placed to progress into employment as a newly qualified teacher in a primary school.

Our graduates obtain work in schools across the UK and abroad and we offer excellent support to help you gain your first teaching post. You will have an ability to teach in key stage 1 or key stage 2 in primary schools, a strong knowledge of primary education, excellent physical education subject knowledge and pedagogy, and outstanding classroom skills, so that you meet and exceed the national standards for Qualified Teacher Status.

You will also have a thorough understanding of how to teach the primary curriculum in creative ways that excite and stimulate children whilst ensuring that they make good progress. In addition, you will have a deep knowledge of primary physical education and be well placed to take a subject leadership role in school. Skills in monitoring and managing your own development, together with an ability to reflect on alternative approaches to education, will help you to make informed choices and aid your career progression.
