Teaching physical education (PE) is a massively rewarding career. Not only do PE teachers help to develop students' sporting ability, but they also watch their classes grow in confidence and determination. 

"PE is more than just playing a sport, the subject helps students to grow personally and learn how to stay healthy throughout the rest of their lives." 


Now is a great time to train to teach PE. It’s becoming increasingly popular with students and as one of the core subjects of the curriculum, schools need talented PE teachers.
