Why choose this course?

The Physical Education, Sport and Activity (PESA) Foundation Degree (FdA) is unique in that it enables practitioners working with children and young people to continue in related employment whilst engaging in academic study during the evenings and with occasional weekend attendance.

You will attend scheduled teaching and learning sessions that have been planned to minimise disruption to the typical working week, whilst being able to implement what you are learning in your day to day role.

As an employment-based course the authentic and innovative PESA FdA enables you to learn and apply the skills and knowledge you will acquire as an integrated element of the course. Your developed knowledge and skills will provide you with the grounding to take on enhanced roles within the workplace and can lead to career opportunities within leadership and management of your chosen field.

You must be in work for a minimum of 16 hours to enrol on this degree. Work can be paid or unpaid. There are opportunities to work abroad with our partners in Spain, Greece, India or USA.

What you will study

You will critically evaluate the appropriateness of different approaches to problem solving in physical education and sport and be able to apply these in a work context. The course is pedagogically focused and you will examine effective strategies for teaching and learning in the PESA context. Through engagement in the course you will develop appropriate academic skills to graduate as independent learners and thinkers.

Teaching on the course is undertaken by lecturers and tutors who are actively engaged in national and international research projects. This ensures that you are fully involved with ‘cutting edge' theories and emerging issues that impact upon practice, making this an exciting and dynamic programme of study. The course design will ensure that you have the opportunity to develop your own skills to become practitioner researchers in a chosen aspect of your working practice.
