PE Certificates Aren't Just for Qualified Teachers
You don’t need to be a qualified teacher to apply for this course.
You do need to have a Level 8 undergraduate degree to apply for this course.
Portobello Institute has two Level 8 Certificates that cover all undergraduate degree holders. Sports graduates apply to the Certificate in Higher Education PE for Sports Graduates. Graduates from non-Sports courses apply to the Certificate in Higher Education PE for Qualified Teachers.
If you’re unsure about what category your degree would put you in, you can contact us to find out and we will help you onto the course you’re looking for.
The two courses run parallel to each other with mostly shared modules. The only difference between the two courses is two added modules for Qualified Teachers that Sports Graduates would have already studied in their initial undergraduate degree.
Both courses include:
Introduction to Athletics & Games for Physical Education
Introduction to Gymnastics & Dance for Physical Education
Applied Principles and Teaching for Adventure Activities
Applied Principles and Teaching for Aquatics
Advanced Pedagogy for Disability PE
Advanced Pedagogy for Health Promotion PE
Non-Sports Graduates add:
Human Anatomy & Biomechanics
Human Physiology and Training Principles
Both courses last eight months and graduates from each programme are awarded the same qualification upon course completion.
