Course summary

This physical education degree has been specifically developed to help prepare you for a career in teaching. You’ll gain first-hand experience of teaching physical education in schools, the latest child development practices, and issues facing the education sector. Work placements spread across all three years of study ensure that you’ll graduate feeling fully prepared to undertake PGCE or School Direct training.The curriculum has been put together based on feedback from a panel of postgraduate teacher training providers. This means that you’ll be in the strongest possible position when it comes time to apply for training opportunities. Course themes include physical education; teaching and learning; child development; physical and motor movement in young people; educational psychology; and research methods. You’ll also have the opportunity to specialise your knowledge and prepare to work with age groups that match your personal career ambitions.We are proud to manage the Southampton School Sports Partnership, a scheme that was introduced to improve the quality of sports education within the city. Our involvement in the partnership gives sport development, coaching and physical education students access to 72 primary schools, 15 secondary schools and 6 FE colleges in and around the Southampton area. Working alongside these partner institutions will help you to put the theory you’ve learnt into practice. This practical work forms an essential part of your assessment.We are also proud to be one of just two British universities to hold accreditation from the Association for Physical Education.

Tutors hold a wealth of experience gained from time spent working across the whole of the education sector, and you’ll benefit from their first-hand knowledge of each discrete population group. Their insight will allow you to better understand the specific pedagogies of child development, and see how proper intervention during childhood can help to create the next generation of physically active adults.Work placements are spread across all three years of this course, helping to ensure that you graduate with experience at all levels of teaching and youth sport.This course provides the perfect springboard for those who are working towards a career in PE teaching.
