This course prepares you for a career as a skilled primary teacher, specialising in physical education. As well as dedicated PE tuition, you gain an up-to-date knowledge of core Key Stage 1 and 2 subjects including English, science and mathematics.
On successful completion of the course students are awarded QTS, PGCE, comprising 60 credits at Master Level 6.
Students take part in a summer school PE and sport programme designed to develop specialist skills to lead physical education in a primary school setting.
The PE programme includes the opportunity to take part in a 5 day PE placement in Gran Canaria. This takes place the week following February half term and provides PE trainees with a taste of what it might be like working in an international school. Sheffield Hallam offers funding to support this experience (this funding is determined year on year).
Students are placed in two highly performing schools, mentored by good and outstanding teachers.
They will experience all aspects of school life which is invaluable when applying for future teaching positions.
Students will spend more than 120 days in schools on placement.
We arrange for students to visit EYFS provision to increase their awareness of where children transition into Key Stage 1 from, we will also arrange for students to visit a secondary school to increase their awareness of where children transition on to from Key Stage 2.
Students will also have the opportunity to view best practice for SEN and EAL children.
