A recent study by the Youth Sports Trust found that two-thirds of secondary school PE students do not enjoy (competitive) PE. Furthermore, only 8% of girls and 16% of boys are meeting daily recommended activity levels. We need you to help change this! This programme is specifically designed to provide you with the practical, professional and academic skills that are needed to prepare you for a successful career as a secondary school PE teacher. You will have the flexibility to choose modules that suit your interests and allow you to specialise in a field of your choice. You will spend a large proportion of your time in practical sessions and on teaching placements. This course takes a ‘hands on’ approach so you can learn by doing. Training high quality secondary PE teachers has been at the heart of the University of Chichester for generations; it is what we do! This course will allow you to access teacher training via our own PGCE or by school based schemes. Highlights of this course:
- Outdoor Education residential trips
- PE inclusion (disability) festival
- Focus on all PE curriculum areas
- Option to swap between PE courses

English language requirements
If you are an international student and English is not your first language, you can begin your 3-year degree programme at IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
