Course content

The Secondary Physical Education Courses at Brunel University London have a long standing national reputation for high quality Teacher Education. The PGCE Secondary Physical Education course is very popular, drawing on outstanding expertise and experience in Education to build upon your commitment to the teaching profession and the subject area. The course will enable you to develop your knowledge and skills, supporting you in becoming an outstanding teacher who will help young people to reach their full potential and improve their mental and physical wellbeing.

The intensive programme combines courses in principles and methods of teaching with practical school-based teaching placements and students are assessed on both elements.Schools and LEA's are increasingly seeking to employ teachers with not only high levels of competence and skill in classroom practice, but practitioners who have advanced subject knowledge for teaching and enhanced knowledge of systems and theories relevant to education.

The course is organised in termly blocks which address both Education Studies and Physical Education Subject Studies, the understanding of which is developed as the year progresses.

Throughout the course, theory and practice are integrated in both the University and school contexts. The course is planned and delivered in partnership with Physical Education colleagues in local schools. The Teachers’ Standards are mapped to every aspect of course provision to facilitate the best possible opportunities to support the process of your professional learning.

All our Education courses have been developed in collaboration with Partnership schools and the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). This ensures not only the highest possible quality of provision, but also relevance in reflecting national and school-level priorities in Education.
