Why Choose P.E?
This course will give you a fantastic insight into the amazing world of sports performance. You will have the chance to perform or coach a sport as well as developing a wide-ranging knowledge into the how and why of physical activity and sport.
The combination of physical performance and academic challenge provides you with an exciting opportunity. Physical Education is studied through a range of contexts; you will learn the reasons why we do things, why some people outperform others, mentally and physically. You will delve into the ethical use of performance enhancing drugs and the inﬂuence that modern technology is having on sport.
What is Involved?
You will study three compulsory modules:
Physiological Factors Affecting Performance (this includes anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology and biomechanics).
Psychological Factors Affecting Performance (this includes skill acquisition, sports psychology).
Socio- cultural Issues in Physical Activity and Sport (sport and society and contemporary issues in sport).
You will also be assessed in one practical activity where you are required to perform or coach. In addition you will observe and evaluate a live performance of another candidate.
