Course summary

**Additional Requirements:**It is important that applicants for education programmes are able to show their suitability for the programme and for the teaching profession. The main focus of this programme is on teaching children and through your personal statement you should be able to demonstrate an aptitude for this. You should demonstrate knowledge of the Curriculum for Excellence, relevant work experience, and explaining your understanding of the teacher's role. **Interview:**There will be an interview process for the Physical Education programme. We interview 72 candidates each year and if selected for interview you will be taking part in a number of activities during the Interview day. These interviews are on fixed dates that applicants would be expected to make themselves available for. **The interview consists of the following:****Practical Performance Assessments** - these will assess both your general ability across a wide range of familiar activities such as **Dance, Games, Gymnastics and Swimming** (candidates are required to pass all components of the interview day) and give you an opportunity to undertake a little teaching with the other members in your group. During the interview day, there will also be **Team Building exercises, a Group Interview and a Personal Interview**. You will be required to prepare a three minute talk to give at the start of your personal interview under the title of ‘You should choose me because…’ Choose our Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degree and learn from world-leading academics and outstanding teachers seconded from local schools. This gives you access to cutting-edge practice and research throughout your secondary teaching degree.Our pioneering approach to professional education gives you time to develop as a secondary school teacher. With our four year teaching degree, you’ll be able to grow in confidence and critically reflect on your skills. Taking a one year conversion course to become a teacher doesn’t give you this flexibility.We enable you to study the practice of teaching (pedagogy) and two specialist subjects simultaneously. So, for example, you could study English and History to degree level alongside teaching.You’ll gain a research-informed degree, making you well equipped to enter the world of secondary education from the day you graduate. In the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), our Educational research had the highest quality of research outputs of any Scottish university, with 100% rated either world-leading or internationally excellent.**Physical Education cannot be combined with any other degree course.**
