Make a difference to the health and wellbeing of young people through physical education and school sports. Gain experience in primary and secondary schools, as well as sports clubs. Learn from industry professionals and gain a teaching qualification alongside your degree.

Inspire young people to get active and develop essential life skills through sport. This degree will enable you to play a pivotal role in improving young people’s physical, social and emotional development, as well as their abilities to make confident decisions about their futures.

You’ll develop skills in a range of activities, looking closely at movement, games, swimming, and outdoor and adventurous activities (OAA), benefiting from field trips to outdoor education centres across the UK. You’ll have opportunities to obtain additional qualifications, such as FA Primary Teachers Award, hockey teacher’s award and RFU coaching levels. Embedded within the programme, you’ll also have the opportunity to achieve the Level 5 Certificate in Primary PE Specialism. This could help you secure a paid teaching assistant role in a school while you’re studying.

In your first year you’ll develop the foundations of your physical education practice. You’ll gain work experience in a school or sports club, as well as with young people learning on-campus. The curriculum will play a key role in your learning this year, as you develop creative teaching techniques and gain new confidence to work with young people across all key stages of it.

In your second and final years, you’ll cement your passion for primary or secondary school education in relevant work placements. You’ll also complete your dissertation, which will enable you to develop specialist knowledge in an area that interests you and that you can use to strengthen your practice. By the end of your degree, you’ll have a strong professional portfolio, which you can use to showcase your practical skills and experience to potential employers.
