Overview

The curriculum has been put together based on feedback from a panel of postgraduate teacher training providers. This means that you’ll be in the strongest possible position when it comes time to apply for training opportunities. 

Course themes include physical education; teaching and learning; child development; physical and motor movement in young people; educational psychology; and research methods. You’ll also have the opportunity to specialise your knowledge and prepare to work with age groups that match your personal career ambitions.

As a physical education student, you’ll work closely with our expert course team. Tutors hold a wealth of experience gained from time spent working across the whole of the education sector, and you’ll benefit from their first-hand knowledge of each discrete population group. 

Their insight will allow you to better understand the specific pedagogies of child development, and see how proper intervention during childhood can help to create the next generation of physically active adults.
