Physical Education (3-14)

This programme has been introduced in response to the growing global interest in children's physical education, physical activity, sport and wellbeing. The structure of the programme will enable students to complete the qualification while maintaining their current role. Courses involve a detailed investigation of the developmental, curriculum, pedagogy, professional learning and policy knowledge needed to support learning in different contexts across the 3-14 age range. With physical activity being a shared endeavour, students will critically investigate the collaboration and partnership issues raised in school and local community settings.
