Course summary

As a Teach North PE trainee, you will inspire all students to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities, supporting their health, fitness and wellbeing. You will teach students what makes a performance effective and how to apply these principles to their own and others’ work.

You will deliver lessons that offer the students the chance to compete in sport and other activities which build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Your lessons will be brimming with opportunities for students to develop their confidence and their interest to get involved in exercise, sports and activities out of school and in later life, understanding and applying the long-term health benefits of physical activity.

On completion of this programme, you will be awarded a PGCE with QTS and 60 Masters credits in Education from Sheffield Hallam University.

You’ll be delighted to know that we have a strong partnership with Sheffield Hallam University, who are a national centre of education and are recognised for their excellence and innovation in teaching and learning. This partnership creates a collaborative model of training.

To do this, we ensure that:

  • students are always at the forefront of what we do, so we can help them to reach their potential
  • that all our staff strive to be experts in our respective fields
  • together, as a trust, we are obsessive about attaining the highest standards, thereby enhancing children’s life-chances.

Quite simply, we want to be known for placing:

Students first; raising standards and transforming lives.

International candidates

You’ll need the right to study in the UK. You already have this if, for example, you:

  • are an Irish citizen
  • have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme (you may still be able to apply)
  • have indefinite leave to remain in the UK

If you do not already have the right to study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa. The main visa for fee-paying courses (those that you have to pay for) is the Student visa.

To apply for a Student visa, you’ll need to be sponsored by your training provider.

Sponsorship is not available for this course.

If you need a visa, filter your course search to find courses with visa sponsorship.

Alternatively, check if you’re eligible for a different type of visa, such as a Graduate or Family visa, that allows you to train to be a teacher without being sponsored.

You can call Get Into Teaching on 0800 389 2500 for:

  • guidance on the UK equivalents of your qualifications
  • a free statement of comparability once you’ve submitted your application (if we ask you for this)
