    INTRODUCTION

    Welcome to the University of Greenwich and the PGCE Secondary programme. This booklet

    contains the information which will help you to understand the main structures of the Secondary

    Physical Education PGCE course. As with all programmes within the University the Secondary

    PGCE is composed of modules. Each has its own aims and learning outcomes, and each has

    assessment items. For Secondary Physical Education the modules are: TEAC 1168/1169

    (Subject knowledge and pedagogy).

    The Physical Education course is taught through workshop sessions here at the University in

    the Pe & Sport department and interspersed with serial placement days in a partnership

    secondary schools.

    The PGCE programme is hard work and requires complete commitment during what will be an

    intensive year of study and work placement. You will be in schools for over 120 days and will

    be working with your school mentor to help you understand aspects of planning, teaching,

    marking and reflecting on your practice. There are two other blocks of University teaching – in

    January and April/May. Each school half term you will also work at the University.

    You are expected to attend all University-based sessions. A record of attendance and

    punctuality is kept and the information will be reflected in any references that are written. If, for

    any reason, you are unable to attend either a day in university or in school, you must

    contact Dr Samuel Coombes. In addition, if it is a school placement day you must inform your

    placement school in advance if possible of you being absent.

    The one-year PGCE is a very demanding course – both in terms of practical teaching in school, and the many new ways of thinking, discussing and reflecting that will be needed in the workshop sessions and during the school placements. You may find the written work is difficult if you are more used to a technical context, or if English is not your first language. Our training is designed to take account of these problems and to build your confidence, but it is important to ask for clarification, seek guidance or specific help if you are struggling. Others will probably have similar questions and concerns, you will not be alone.

    The teaching staff look forward to working with you and hope you have an enjoyable and

    successful year at the University of Greenwich.

    You can contact Dr Samuel Coombes via e-mail (s.coombes@gre.ac.uk) as your first

    point of contact to help with any issues.

    THE SECONDARY PHYSICAL EDUCATION COURSE

  • 4

    The principal aim of the Physical Education course is to help trainee teachers to understand

    how pupils learn PE and how PE teachers can teach effectively, safely and in an interesting

    and engaging way, to secondary school pupils of all ages and abilities. The courses also aim to

    develop students’ knowledge and understanding of pedagogical principles and practical

    knowledge across 6 areas of physical activity.

    The subject modules TEAC 1168/1169 (Subject knowledge and pedagogy) and other university

    and school-based work, are essential to students’ development as PE teachers.

    The PE subject module is complemented by the Professional Studies module. Many of the

    components of the modules studied on the PGCE Programme are inter-related. Trainees are

    expected to be analytical and critical in their thinking, using what they have learned in one

    course to raise questions and generate possible answers in another.
