About this course


Course option

2.0years

Full-time | 2020

Physical education is an established yet expanding industry both locally and nationally, with over 200 schools and educational establishments employing physical education teachers within the Leeds district alone. The current employment trends forecasted by the British Government predict an additional 10,000 physical education teaching jobs nationally and over 500 within Yorkshire over the next 5 years. Therefore, increasing the demand for newly qualified physical education teachers.

This exciting new programme has been developed with input from current physical education teachers, primary and high school headmasters and self-employed school orientated coaches. The course has been fashioned to establish and develop your knowledge in the physical education industry whilst providing you with the qualification and skills needed to acquire paid employment as a sports coach and lead practical physical education sessions within schools.

We interlink the practical skills required to acquire employment with the theoretical and academic skills to succeed in a Higher Education programme. You will receive encouragement from the course lecturers and work placement advisors to gain knowledge in areas such as: Coaching practice in sport and physical education, Inclusive physical education, learning and the policies and practices of a physical education teacher. The course will appropriately prepare you for employment but also prepare you to undertake the Top-Up year for a full BA (Honours) degree which on completion would lead to a Post Graduate Certificate in Education if required.

During the course you will be required to complete a range of work placements within local schools or with local sports teams as part of the Work Related Learning module, as well as planning and delivering practical coaching sessions and classroom based lessons. The course offers places for students to undertake their Work Placement abroad at a variety of schools in Orebro, Sweden, working in both primary and secondary education whilst leading sporting activities. This will provide you with valuable industry experience, networking opportunities and industry recognised qualifications.

Modules

Year One - In the first year you will gain an overall understanding of the Sport sector: • Coaching Practice • Fundamentals of Training and Fitness • Professional Development • Psychology of Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity • Sociology of Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity • Sports Analysis Year Two - In the second year you will gain the following PE specific modules: • Independent Study • Coaching in Sport and Physical Education • Inclusive Physical Education • Learning and Teaching in Physical Education • Policy and Practice in Physical Education • Work Related Learning.

Assessment methods

The assessment strategy of the course consists mainly of coursework, work based placements and practical assessments as these will offer you the closest real-life experience to secure future employment. Examples of assessment methods used within the course are: Practical session with reflective essays, written reports, Industry simulations, presentations and Vivas.

The course lecturers will clearly explain the course content, interlinking the assessment methods and each assessments requirements. However, all of the information on assessments are provided within the course handbook, programme specification and each individual module handbook available to students after enrolment.
