Our nationally-recognised qualification, created in partnership with the Association for Physical Education (afPE), enables delegates to become specialists in supporting the emotional and social wellbeing of pupils through physical education.

What does the Qualification involve?

Teaching physical eduation is key to supporting the emotional wellbeing of pupils through the curriculum and we belive that those teaching this crucial subject should feel confident in their delivery.

With such a high importance placed on physical activity and education, we have worked closely with the Association for Physical Education (afPE) to develop this qualification, which increases the delegate's knowledge and understanding of the subject.

By ensuring that all children and young people have access to a high quality offer that supports their physical health and emotional wellbeing, this places physical education, sport and physical activity at the heart of school life.
