With the changing nature of teacher education, Southampton Solent University have created a brand new course for 2014 to assist those wanting to enter and further their career in physical education.
In recent years we’ve seen such a significant growth in the number of students studying sport-related courses here, especially those wanting to enter the profession of PE teaching. So it felt natural to embrace the outstanding reputation of our sports courses by giving the students what they want to study.
The BA (Hons) Sport and Physical Education will offer students a clear course option to become a physical education teacher. This new course will also have the benefit of various teaching pathways from primary and secondary level, to college.
When designing the title, structure and content of the course, the course team really wanted to make sure our students had a good all round grounding in sport and physical education, coupled with real world learning experiences in a variety of school environments. Our goal is to give students an excellent foundation and brilliant starting point for their future careers.
We’re all really excited about this new course and I know the first student group in September 2014 will have an excellent experience and who knows, in a few years’ time they’ll be coming back to us as fully fledged teachers of physical education!
