Course summary

Are you looking to progress your career in an accelerated format, preparing you for postgraduate teacher training in a shorter time period?This programme will allow you to complete our Physical Education and School Sport degree in two years. This has many advantages, allowing graduates to potentially qualify as a teacher earlier.You’ll prepare for a wide range of careers by studying physical education and school sport in its broadest sense. Exploring the full lifecycle of physical education, you’ll gain knowledge and experience of physical education for primary and secondary school children, how to develop physically literate young people to enable them to live active, healthy lives, as well as building active schools and their communities.Within the two years you’ll study a combination of theoretical and practical modules, covering themes such as psychology, sociology, sport science, pedagogy and philosophy. This is a practical and vocational degree, so you’ll apply your learning to games, athletics, outdoor adventurous activities, gymnastics and dance.Gaining professional experience is crucial, so we’ll give you plenty of opportunities to put theory into practice throughout your degree. You’ll complete professional work placements in a sport setting of your choice, which could be in the UK or potentially abroad. By the time you graduate, you’ll be prepared for a potential career in teaching via a PGCE, as well as a range of other careers in physical education and sport.**Professional placements**Our past students on PE programmes have assisted teaching in primary and secondary schools, delivered fitness sessions alongside personal training and strength and conditioning professionals, and gained enterprise experience with entrepreneurs. Some students have worked with county sports partnerships or national governing bodies for sport, such as the Football Association, Rugby Football League and England Netball.**Career opportunities**Graduates can go on to work as Physical Education teachers (following acquiring Qualified Teacher Status), sports coaches, sports development officers, personal trainers, health trainers or set up their own businesses as providers of school sport.
