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.

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 democratic and lifetime movement activity choices - helping them to develop their movement literacy and important life skills, such as participation, voice, choice, and negotiation skills.

Our state-of-the-art SportsDock facility offers ideal on-site learning facilities in which to develop your teaching skills. But, we also use many of our partner schools to do our practical sessions when we are not in the classroom spaces.

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.
