Course summary

Our Physical Education (PE) PGCE course continues the tradition of producing outstanding practitioners of secondary PE.

Why study Secondary Physical Education (PE)?

You will be assessed on your ability to teach pupils in the 11-16 age range, with opportunities for A level and BTEC teaching also included in the programme as appropriate.

By studying the course you will gain experience across a diverse range of secondary school settings and activity areas throughout the course.

Why St Mary's?

The PE PGCE course covers all aspects of physical education teaching and learning, with an emphasis on creative practice for use in school. There is a strong emphasis on using and developing a range of physical education models, as well as planning for the whole ability range to ensure that all pupils are able to make progress.

The experienced physical education tutors work in close partnership with trainees and the placement schools, developing collaborative practice embedded throughout the course.

Assessment methods

Trainees are recommended for Qualified Teacher Status by successfully meeting the Teachers’ Standards (DfE). Continuous assessment throughout the programme will determine success.

Master's level assignments complement the work in schools and assist in meeting the Teachers’ Standards. These assignments aim to encourage you to be thoughtful and reflective, but also reinforce the evidence-based nature of the course assessment.

Self-assessment is also recognised as a valuable perspective in the evaluation of both school and university-based work.

Career opportunities

The quality of the provision at St Mary’s is valued by our trainees and schools, resulting in high levels (over 70%) of NQT employment in our partnership schools. Employment rates following the PGCE course are consistently over 90% in teaching roles.

On the programme you will study two Master's' modules leading to 60 credits at postgraduate level. You will have the opportunity to further your postgraduate studies in your career as these credits are transferable.

At the end of the PGCE course, you will have the opportunity to complete a three-week placement in a special education setting. This is highly valued by trainee teachers to broaden their understanding of specific learning needs for some learners.
