Modules on this programme are delivered through a combination of lectures and small group tutorials/seminars or practical. Theoretical learning gained through lectures and directed independent learning will be applied and developed through workshops and practical sessions.
On this programme students undertake three 20-credit Placement modules, two of which are over 7 weeks and the third placement is over six weeks. There will be a placement at different times of the year to allow students to experience the whole school year. Placements are tailored to the degree programme to gain a professionally relevant experience to give students the skills needed for future careers. Placements will ensure students gain experience of teaching and learning in schools and develop an understanding of the curriculum delivery of Physical Education.
At Level 6 students will study a 40-credit Dissertation module to provide an extended opportunity for critical thinking and skill development relevant to specific areas of interest developed in relation to the programme and potential future career opportunities.
The School of Social and Health Sciences offer all students the opportunity to take part in sports volunteering on or off-site and, or, to take coaching awards to add to their CV. They have a dedicated Sports Development Co-ordinator to organise sports coaching and volunteering as part of the extra-curricular activities. #expand#
At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and a personal approach to helping students achieve their academic and professional potential. We have a strong tradition of supporting student employability, with relevant skills embedded in the curriculum and professional work placements included in all our undergraduate programmes.
The key themes of our strategy are student confidence, professionalism and social responsibility. To help students achieve their potential we emphasise learning as a collaborative process, with a range of student-led and directed activities. This approach ensures that students fully engage in shaping their own learning, developing their critical thinking and reflective skills so that they can identify their own strengths and weaknesses, and use the extensive learning support system we offer to shape their own development. Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy can be accessed here.
We make extensive use of Moodle, Leeds Trinity's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), to support class sessions, and of e-resources to enable 24/7 access to learning materials from off-campus. Each Module Leader will provide lecture notes on this site to support their learning and other activities such as quizzes to check learning or additional reading or online tutorial activities in addition to the taught sessions.
A variety of assessment methods are used, matched to the learning outcomes for the programme, to enable students to demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that they have developed. There is some scope for students to be involved in negotiating and evaluating some assessment.
The variety of assessments in Sport, Health & Nutrition are noted by the External Examiner to be "the very best of practice in the sector" Staff are very creative in their assessments, providing engaging assignments. Students may be asked to carry out oral assessments and practical assessments in the sports laboratory.
In addition to each of your module assessments you will take a programme level assessment in each of the first and second year of your programme. This is designed to assess your understanding of everything you have been taught and to help you to understand how different elements of your degree fit together to make a coherent programme.
You will be given weekly directed activities to complete in each module. These will contribute marks towards the final module assessment and reward engagement with the content of the module. They will also help you to check your understanding of what has been taught. Some of these activities may include further reading or preparation tasks for seminars. Some of the tasks will be completed online and may include quizzes which provide you with instant feedback on your understanding of the module content. In some modules lecturers may place some of the taught content on videos which you may be required to watch prior to attending a class. This will free up time for you to work on meaningful projects in class.
On this programme there are some assessments which are marked on a pass/fail basis rather than graded. Please note that these assessments are excluded from the calculations made to produce the figures published in the Key Information Set (KIS) for this programme/subject.
