Teacher Training

Course Overview

The PE with EBacc programme is an exciting new route into teaching PE whilst also giving you the skills and experience to teach an additional EBacc subject: Science, Maths, English, History, Modern Foreign Languages or Geography. Training with West Midlands Consortium will fully equip you for the demands of teaching both subjects including the development of the required subject knowledge and understanding of pedagogical approaches unique to both subjects. Whilst on placement you will predominantly teach PE and will only be assessed against the Teachers’ Standards in your PE lessons, however, you will also teach your second subject.

The most exciting thing about this new route is the flexibility it provides in the employment market as you can offer schools more than just the ability to teach PE.

All applicants to the PE with EBacc route must have achieved a standard equivalent to a grade ‘C’ or better at A level in the relevant EBacc subject.

Fully funded Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses are now available for PE ITT trainees provided that they meet the entry requirements. You may also be eligible for a tax-free SKE training bursary of up to £175 per week for full time courses and £87.50 per week for part time courses.
