Course summary

Students will fully explore the fundamentals of physical education and sport pedagogy, including applied practical skills, child development, pedagogical skills, sport policy and practice. Practical and academic studies analyse the effects of exercise on the body and undertake a range of physical activities experienced at different levels and ages of pupils.

Students will explore the national curriculum at primary and secondary school level and be involved in the full range of practical areas: major games, swimming, athletics, gymnastics, dance and outdoor and adventurous activities. This will enable you to have a complete background to move onto PGCE teacher training or be a community sport leader. The programme will also consider key youth sport issues such as the obesity crisis and the need to promote physically active lifestyles.

The foundation year will introduce students to the fundamental principles of sports coaching and the role and responsibilities of the coach within a range of contexts, including legal obligations, problem solving, analysing, professional conduct and the ability to develop the skills necessary to plan, deliver and review the successful delivery of a sports coaching session.
