Year one will focus on Engaging and exploring practical contexts (teaching and learning) are an integral part of this phase and encourage students to develop their physical competence, tactical awareness and teaching strategies in a variety of PE and sports related environments. Year two will be about the students developing their learning and their evaluative and critical thinking. This will occur through further development of subject knowledge along with developing the ability to critically compare, analyse, and synthesise information. Opportunities will allow students to probe more deeply into relevant theory and practice to better understand the contexts of Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy. A strong theoretical foundation will assist students in reflecting on theory in practice. The theme for the final year is developing and applying academic and career skills. Students will 'innovate' to push the barriers of current thinking.
