PE teacher through plc course

I always wanted to become a PE teacher but didn’t get enough points to get into a Higher Education Institute. What are my options now?

Every year there are college applicants left extremely disappointed when they fail to make the points required to study physical education in the University sector. Most of those eager to work as a PE teacher usually look to alternative avenues to get into this very popular area – hence the competitiveness.

A starting point for you would be to contact your local PLC provider/s and see do they offer a further education course in health and leisure. On completion of this course, you can look at progressing to an Institute of Technology, like Tralee, for example, and complete their Bachelor of Science in Health and Leisure followed by their add on honours degree programme in physical education and then transfer to University of Limerick for a one year Higher Diploma in Education.

As mentioned, this is an extremely popular path that many take to gain entry to Physical Education Teaching. Entry is based on interview and having at least a 2:2 in a relevant Primary Degree at Honours level, which is recognised by the Teaching Council for the purposes of teaching P.E. Candidates will also be expected to provide a portfolio of evidence of movement achievement. Garda clearance is also a requirement for this programme.
