Physical Education A Level at Sunderland College
This course is for people looking to move in to higher education or are thinking of a career in the Sport and Recreation industry. It’s also a good course for anybody looking to develop their own sporting performance.
In the first year of the course you’ll develop your own ability as a performer and official or leader, including in-depth analysis of your sporting and coaching abilities. You’ll also look at how a sport of your choice is run at a local and national level as well as the physiological effects of exercise and the history and development of competitive sport.
In the second year you’ll build upon your abilities as a performer, leader or official in your chosen sport and see how it is run on an international level. You’ll also cover short and long term preparation and management of elite performers.
You’ll need five GCSE’s at grade C including English and P.E or a science.
You’ll be taught through a mixture of classroom and practical methods as well as developing your own knowledge independently between sessions.
A-level P.E can help you enter higher education at Sunderland College or university to follow a degree course in a related subject. This could then open the door to jobs in teaching, coaching, fitness or sport science support.
