The Physical Education (PE) PGCE course at St Mary’s University continues the tradition of producing outstanding practitioners of secondary PE. Trainees are assessed on their ability to teach pupils in the 11-16 age range, with opportunities for KS5 academic PE teaching as appropriate.
An individual studying on the PE with EBacc (English Baccalaureate) PGCE programme develops additional skills and experiences in one of a range of EBacc subjects - Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Science, Maths, English, History or MFL (Modern Foreign Languages).
Applications should have a 2:1, or above with an ’ in line’ degree classification. You can apply to our Secondary PE PGCE course with a 2:2 ‘in line’ degree classification but your application should also highlight an understanding of Secondary PE curriculum.
