Physical Education short courses and consultancy

PE is one of the largest and most established departments in the University and benefits from having a breadth of expertise and experience amongst its staff, most of whom have held senior PE teaching posts in schools and advisory services.

Continued research in their field has enabled many colleagues to earn eminent reputations. These combined effects enable us to be able to respond to the national PE agenda and to work with teachers and support school-based projects in a bespoke way.

We are always pleased to work in partnership and/or provide short course/consultancy in areas that help schools to raise standards and support school improvement plans.

Coaching Science Specialists

We also have Coaching Science specialists who are experienced coach educators, and have been involved in course delivery for governing bodies at regional and national level.

We are also involved in a programme of applied research – and seek to integrate our research into our work with clients where appropriate, ensuring that we are at the cutting edge in both service delivery, and in contributing to the knowledge base to support sustained World Class performance in sport in the UK.
