Course content

This course leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for the 11-to-16 age range, which qualifies you to be a teacher in secondary schools in England and Wales. Where possible, we also give you the chance to gain experience in the 11-to-18 age range.

At the University of East London we believe every child is entitled to a high-quality PE curriculum which places their physical, social, cognitive and emotional needs at the core of its purpose.

As a PE student teacher, you will develop into someone who can be responsible for honing pupils’ abilities in a range of physical pursuits – helping them to develop their personal fitness and a healthy, active lifestyle as well as important life skills.

Our state-of-the-art SportsDock facility offers ideal on-site learning facilities in which to develop your teaching skills.

There are three elements to secondary training with us: subject studies, general professional studies and school-based training. It differs from courses offered by other universities in that it is very much subject-based.

Our ethos is based on collaboration, not competition. We encourage you to work collaboratively just as you will when you qualify and start working in a school.
