Course description

The introduction of PE as a Leaving Cert exam subject has increased the demand for qualified PE teachers. We recognise that there are many teachers qualified and teaching other subject specialisms who may be interested in upskilling and adding PE to their professional remit as a second (or additional) subject. Teachers from a non-science or non-sports science background may require additional credits to supplement their primary degree to meet the Teaching Council credit specifications. This 8 month course is designed for those students wishing to enter the PE teaching profession and will equip you with an in-depth knowledge of physical education.
