About Secondary Education Physical Education at University of Greenwich

This popular programme provides student teachers with specialist training in the teaching of physical education so that they become confident and competent practitioners in a secondary school setting. It aims to develop teachers who are able to work effectively across a range of pedagogical areas and practical activities to provide them with essential skills and understanding in this important area of education.

Within school-based and university environments trainees will be supported in developing a range of transferable skills related to teaching, learning and assessment; understanding of inclusive learning environments that respond to the diverse needs of pupils; the ability to work with other adults in a variety of learning environments and an understanding of relevant professional, statutory and regulatory bodies and employers.

Concepts such as equity and inclusivity of practice are promoted as being important in nurturing the potential of children regardless of age, (dis)ability, gender or ethnic background. Such concepts, together with the notion of teaching children, holistically, through the medium of physical activity are important features of the programme.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To develop understanding of how to bring about learning in physical education with secondary-age pupils
  • To widen knowledge and understanding across the field of physical education
  • To become confident, competent and effective teachers of physical education in schools
  • To learn to reflect on theory and practice.
