You’ll spend your time on the course exploring the pedagogy of teaching the full range of national curriculum activity areas for physical education. You’ll get to grips with the range of physical education qualifications available, and you’ll learn to prepare pupils for GCSE and A-level physical education, as well as vocational qualifications such as leadership awards in the physical education curriculum.
