This new programme is being developed at a time when children's physical education, sport and physical activity are areas of increased political, professional and academic focus.
|Name||3-14 Physical Education|
|Mode of Study||PG Certificate (Part-time)|
|Programme Director||Mike Jess|
The Scottish Executive's commitment to two hours of curricular physical education for all children aged 3-18 and the creation of an additional 400 physical education teachers (Scottish Executive, 2004) are excellent examples of this change in emphasis.
As a result, the Scottish Executive Education Department (SEED) has commissioned the University of Edinburgh to develop this postgraduate programme to help registered teachers develop a specialism in physical education.
