Course summary

The MA (Hons) Physical Education programme aims to provide an education that develops professional learners with a well-developed understanding of scientific knowledge and both historical and contemporary perspectives in physical education. The programme focuses on Scottish education, the physical education curriculum and contrasting perspectives on physical education. You will also be involved in professional placements in both primary and secondary schools. Graduates of the programme will be able to make a valuable contribution to the schools they work in and be capable of curricular and pedagogical innovation. Teachers of physical education are required to have a detailed knowledge of children, the curriculum, educational settings, and teaching and learning approaches. You will learn from your own experiences in schools and research to develop an understanding of the changing relationships among teachers, parents/carers, other agencies and the wider community. Working as a specialist teacher in secondary education is a demanding and rewarding career. You can support the development of young people and work in a subject area where your expertise helps to shape learners experiences. In Scotland 'Curriculum for Excellence' locates physical education within the 'health and wellbeing' area of learning. As a prospective teacher of physical education you will engage in the debates about the aims, nature and purpose of physical education and consider issues related to children's learning experiences. On completion of a teacher education programme, students can register with the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS).
