Course summary

The Postgraduate Diploma in Education (Physical Education) leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and offers 120 credits towards our MA Teaching Studies. Our specialist programme, which offers high quality training and support, will prepare you to teach in the 11-18 age range and is run in partnership with schools.

On the one year Physical Education Postgraduate Diploma Secondary Education course we wish to develop you as a thinking teacher who will be aware of choices in how to teach Physical Education and make informed decisions about how you approach your teaching, in order to enable you to continue to develop over your career.
