Focusing on secondary-age children, you’ll learn about our current education system and how children and young people learn effectively within it. You’ll explore the social, psychological and physiological factors affecting learning and participation, as well as getting plenty of practical teaching experience in games, athletics, outdoor adventurous activities, gymnastics, dance and swimming.
Our teaching is designed to prepare you for your career, with a strong focus on developing key skills such as independent learning, teamwork and responsibility. We take the same approach to assessment, which is a mix of coursework, practical teaching, oral presentations, examination and project work.
Putting theory into practice, you’ll complete three intensive block placements as part of your degree. You’ll get the chance to observe professional practice and analyse what makes teaching effective, as well as applying what you’ve learnt by delivering your own teaching.
You’ll graduate in just two years with 20 weeks’ professional experience and strong subject knowledge in physical education and sport, ready to begin your career in sport or progress on to postgraduate teacher training.
Although the majority of our graduates have chosen to continue their professional development to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), some have gone on to study at Masters level in related areas.
