About the course

This course is accredited by Leeds Beckett University. Your skills and knowledge will be nurtured in a supportive learning community with vast experience of training the next generation of teachers. Your network of support will include our research staff and course tutors, who will be on hand to sharpen your teaching expertise and knowledge of the subject, ensuring it is informed by the latest research and practices.

We will develop your communication skills so that you can confidently manage a large group of pupils. For example, you will understand the importance of varying your tone of voice during group activities, learn how to use equipment such as whistles appropriately and how to address and maintain the attention of your pupils when teaching Art & Design.

We will also give you the skills to confidently manage classes with wide differences in ability. You will be able to devise lessons that develop from personalised activities to games that involve and stimulate your entire class.

Your training will also develop your understanding of how PE can be used to motivate and strengthen learning in your pupils beyond the physical benefits of sport.

School placements

For the vast majority of your course, you will be based in your provider school or schools, learning on the job while being supported by experienced teachers and mentors. You will attend our Headingley Campus one day a week (usually a Friday) for key module seminars.

You will have 3 placements during the course.

International students

We can sponsor Student visas, but this is not guaranteed.

You do not need a visa if you already have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, or if you’re an Irish citizen.

Candidates with qualifications from non-UK institutions may need to provide evidence of comparability by applying for a UK ENIC statement.

Training with disabilities and other needs

The Board is opposed to any discrimination against any person with a disability, based on assumptions of their ability or otherwise to carry out the duties of the post to which they were appointed in school. Where applicable, all candidates with disabilities who meet the basic essential criteria for a post will be interviewed.

Under the Equality Act 2010, reasonable provision will be made for adjustments to a member of staff’s working conditions or environment for any person with a disability appointed to a post in school, where the adjustments are reasonably practicable
