Course summary

Overview

Why study the PGCE Physical Education course?

This course will not only prepare you to teach Physical Education (PE) across the 11-16 age range with post 16 enhancement in secondary schools, but will provide you with valuable knowledge so you develop into an effective classroom practitioner. Providing you with a solid foundation of professional awareness and understanding, the course will foster and develop your competence and confidence in imparting your subject knowledge to young people. Newman can offer you a rich diversity of partnership schools, through a combination of supportive school experiences and active teaching and learning sessions you will develop as a teaching professional.

Students are encouraged to develop into reflective teachers; practitioners who can respond effectively to the learning needs of young people in school and apply imaginatively the principles underpinning a broad and balanced physical education and sport programme.

A significant part of the course will be spent in schools obtaining valuable classroom experience under the supervision of trained mentors and Newman lecturers.

The rich diversity of partner schools ensures a variety of school contexts within which teaching skills can be developed. Nationally recognised sports coaching courses are also available to students studying this course at Newman.

The Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is the most widely recognised UK post graduate award and is transferable. It is accepted, across the UK and internationally, as an assurance that the candidate has achieved the high standard expected for entry to the teaching profession.
