This Physical Education and Wellbeing programme from University of Birmingham seeks to support the continuing professional development of practising and prospective physical education teachers, youth physical activity leaders, assistants or coaches working with young people in schools.
It is expected that students taking the programme will develop the skills to allow them to critically evaluate new developments in theory, research and practice and integrate this knowledge where appropriate into their practice. The distinctiveness and knowledge of students graduating from the qualification will place them in an ideal position to inform the future direction of the profession by taking leadership positions and challenging current practices and/or by engaging in further study at PhD level.
The course is based on the latest evidence, research and innovations in the field of physical education and sport pedagogy. Students will learn in a community of learners with likeminded prospective or current practitioners interested in improving young people’s experiences of physical activity and sport. The course will also strengthen students’ capabilities to lead on new directions in the field of physical education and sport pedagogy by engaging with leading and international practitioners and researchers.
Students completing this degree go onto varying forms of employment or further study. Students who are current teachers have strengthened not only their teaching, but also their leadership skills, and many have progressed in the types of leadership roles they fulfil in schools after completing this degree.
Some students have used the MSc degree as a springboard into further study, that includes, completing a PGCE to gain Qualified Teaching Status, and/or joining a PhD programme. Other students have found the MSc degree has supported their employment in sport/physical activity focussed clubs, sport, physical activity and health organisations and trusts, technology focused companies, leisure centres, coach education and development and/or the course has supported students to initiate their own private or voluntary sector companies.
