Level 5 Certificate in Primary School Physical Education Specialism
The Level 5 Certificate in Primary School Physical Education Specialism is a recognised qualification that aims to upskill primary school teachers, higher level teaching assistants and teaching assistants with extensive experience (experience across year groups and pupil groups) to improve the overall delivery of the physical education curriculum within primary schools. On successful completion of this qualification, delegates will be able to assist in raising the standards within primary school physical education teaching.
The qualification teaches delegates how to understand 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 within primary school physical education.
Delegates will also learn how to develop plans for units of work that cover the primary school physical education curriculum and that use assessment to impact on learning and progress. Delegates will deliver, teach, evaluate and review the plans for units of work and will learn how to use the outcomes of the unit of work to inform future planning.
