Bachelor of Secondary Education (Health & Physical Education)

University of Canberra

This course arms students with the skills they need to be a qualified secondary teacher with a specialisation in PE and health. Students will also study a second teaching discipline of their choice, such as English, mathematics, science, or a humanities or social science subject, to increase their versatility and employability. In this practical course students undertake first-hand learning in the best way possible - by connecting with students in a classroom environment via a series of Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) units, and gain understanding of the nuances of the education system thanks to ongoing direct experience with it. Students will graduate with a thorough understanding of how young people aged 12 to 18 learn, and will be ready to improve the health and wellbeing of their students as a dedicated PE educator.
