What is this qualification about?
This qualification aims to develop professional practice in order to improve the overall delivery of the physical education curriculum within primary schools and raise standards.
What does this qualification cover?
The qualification includes understanding the requirements of the primary school physical education curriculum, the links between the principles of pedagogy and child development and how using a range of activities can impact on ‘good or better’ teaching and learning. Specifically you will develop plans for units of work and use assessment to impact on learning and progress. You will deliver, teach, evaluate and review the plans for units of work and use assessment information about pupil progress towards the unit outcomes to inform future planning.
Who is it suitable for?
The course is suitable to teachers, higher level teaching assistants, teaching assistants (TAs) and coaches (who assist teachers in their PE teaching). TAs and coaches should have extensive experience across year groups and pupil groups and play an integral part in assisting the raising of standards within primary school education. Delegates are not required to have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) accreditation.
What is the duration of the course?
The notional learning time is 96 hours. The guided learning hours are 45 and this equates to a 6 day course programme. A course programme is usually completed in the equivalent of a school academic year. Inter-sessional tasks including background reading and applied vocational learning make up the notional learning time.
How is it assessed?
Evidence of meeting each assessment criteria is required to pass the qualification and this will be demonstrated through your collation of a portfolio of assessment evidence including planning documentation, evaluations and reflection as well as evidence generated by tasks during your tutor contact time.
