Program overview

Throughout the course, emphasis will be placed on developing practical skills and theoretical knowledge to advance teaching pedagogy and enhance your coaching practice.Investigating the scientific and social aspects of sport will allow for the creation of your own teaching and coaching philosophy underpinned by research and theoretical principles. The first year of the course will allow you to focus on your personal areas of interests from within the national curriculum, including a range of individual and team sports. Dance, gymnastics and outdoor adventure activities provide an excellent opportunity to refine skills in more diverse areas of the curriculum. The second year of your studies will focus on underpinning practical skill and knowledge with theoretical understanding. Research will be examined to decipher the current physical education landscape and the role teachers and coaches play in both primary and secondary schools. One specific module has a placement opportunity to gain experience within a work place (typically school based environments). This is an ideal opportunity to gain experience towards applying for a Post Graduate certificate in education (PGCE), or to help assess what area of the curriculum you may want to teach or coach in, moving forward. All students will be provided with the opportunity to complete a DBS, Disclosure and Barring Service, this is compulsory for all work experience opportunities. Your final year will provide you with the opportunity to develop your own research project in your area of interest, to take part in continued professional development programmes and to investigate innovative and emerging teaching practices.
