About the course
This course is accredited by Leeds Beckett University.
Leeds Beckett are an established sports education provider with a rich sporting pedigree. Your skills and knowledge will be nurtured in a supportive learning community with vast experience of training the next generation of PE teachers. Your network of support will include our research staff and course tutors, who will be on hand to sharpen your teaching expertise and knowledge of the subject, ensuring it is informed by the latest research and practices.
You will have access to our wide range of first-class sporting facilities - used by international athletes and Olympic medal winners - to help you in the practical application of your theoretical learning. These include 3G pitches, indoor and floodlit outdoor tennis courts, an athletics track, a swimming pool and gyms packed with the latest fitness equipment.
We will develop your communication skills so that you can confidently manage a large group of pupils. For example, you will understand the importance of varying your tone of voice during group activities, learn how to use equipment such as whistles appropriately and how to address and maintain the attention of your pupils when teaching PE.
We will also give you the skills to confidently manage classes with wide differences in ability. You will be able to devise lessons that develop from personalised activities to games that involve and stimulate your entire class.
Due to the nature of PE, you will not always be able to run your classes outdoors. We will also develop your organisational skills so that you will be able to plan your lessons and teach effectively regardless of the weather.
Your training will also develop your understanding of how PE can be used to motivate and strengthen learning in your pupils beyond the physical benefits of sport.
