What is the Course About?

The course ensures that there are suitably-qualified people with the knowledge, understanding and competency to plan, organise and deliver the teaching of Physical Education and School Sport, and to assess the learning of young people, in a range of environments, including the community and schools.

There are a number of issues that this course aims to address through school sports' provision:

  • primary school teachers receive less than 10 hours' training in delivering Physical Education (during their initial teacher training)
  • England is currently the 5th unhealthiest country in the world and it is a Government priority to tackle this trend
  • almost a quarter of children are overweight or obese by the time they start primary school, and more than a third are overweight by the time they leave

What are the entry requirements?

  • You should hold a Level 2 Physical Education or sport-related qualification (desirable). Examples include: The 1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Learning in Physical Education and School Sport (QCF)
