Overview

The course combines theory, research and practical skills to ensure graduates adopt innovative approaches to teaching and coaching. You’ll learn to critically analyse current practices and develop an evidence-based approach to workplace tasks.

The course is split into five modules. Core modules include ‘Games Based Coaching’, ‘Teaching Physical Education In Schools’ and a final dissertation project. You’ll also pick two optional modules, refining your knowledge and building specialisms in areas that are best suited to your career ambitions.

You’ll learn contemporary coaching and physical education techniques including physical literacy and games based coaching. This work will then be put into practice outside of the classroom, where you will have the opportunity to deliver PE sessions to local primary school children. Planning, delivering and evaluating these PE lessons form a part of your unit assessment, and provide invaluable experience for your CV.
