Physical Education A Level at The Commonweal School

Course description

This is an ideal course for those students wishing to take their Physical Education knowledge further and is an excellent extension to GCSE Physical Education and will provide you with a gateway to a wide and interesting range of jobs and careers ranging from Sports teacher to Sports therapy, Sports psychology to Sports rehabilitation, Sports media to sports management. The course will test students' understanding of the various disciplines which constitute success in sport and will give them an insight into how they have got to where they are and how to progress. A Level PE gives the student, who has an interest in PE, an in-depth analysis of how we perform within a sporting context. The course covers three main disciplines - Sports Psychology, Anatomy & Physiology and the Sociology of Sport, with the focal point being the performer and the performance.

Entry requirements

A minimum requirement of a B grade at GCSE PE is required. A Level candidates need to be participating at club level in at least one sport and have a keen interest in and knowledge of sport. Candidates should also be aware that the course is predominantly theory based; because of the theoretical nature of the subject a BTEC Sport qualification is unsuitable for this course.
