Course summary

Course Details

We are an established Physical Education provider with a long tradition of high quality training for teachers. Your skills and knowledge will be developed in a supportive learning community with vast experience of training the next generation of Physical Education teachers. Your network of support will include our research staff and course tutors, who will be on hand to sharpen your teaching expertise and knowledge of the subject, ensuring it is informed by the latest research and practices. We will develop your communication skills so that you can confidently manage a large group of pupils. For example, you will understand the importance of planning, communication, demonstration and resources to address pupil’s learning and progress when teaching Physical Education. We will give you the skills to confidently manage classes with wide differences in ability. You will be able to devise lessons that develop from personalised activities to games that involve and stimulate your entire class. We will also develop your organisational skills so that you will be able to plan your lessons and teach effectively regardless of the weather. Your training will also develop your understanding of how Physical Education can be used to motivate and strengthen learning in your pupils beyond the physical benefits of sport.

Course Benefits

To prepare you for your course, you will have the opportunity to attend a residential, where you will meet your tutors and fellow trainees, start to foster your support networks and discover how the outdoors can be used to inspire your teaching. You will have access to our wide range of first-class sporting facilities - used by international athletes and Olympic medal winners - to help you in the practical application of your theoretical learning. These include 3G pitches, indoor and floodlit outdoor tennis courts, an athletics track, a swimming pool and gyms packed with the latest fitness equipment. You will gain substantial training in a school environment. Many of the partnership schools are located in and around Leeds so your travelling will be limited and you will have more time to prepare your lessons. You will complete three teaching placements in at least two contrasting schools, receiving support from your school mentor and university tutors.
