Achieving QTS Series
There are useful chapters on aspects such as the importance of PE in primary schools, and contemporary issues in PE. However, as the book heavily links to the 2007 standards, it is not as relevant, which is a shame. Have you considered updating this text at all?
Superb guide to all Primary QTS students/ trainees.
Easy to access and understand with a range of issues raised. The Reflective and Practical Tasks are effective in extending students learning.
Good Book very useful
Useful support for students who lack confidence with this subject area.
I used this text in a first year Curriculum Design module whereby we look at different issues in designing a curriculum through the lense of a selection of curriculum subject areas. We used PE as one curriculum subject area in this module this year and hence this text provided students with key topics to consider (e.g. health and safety, and contemporary issues). This was particularly useful for this group of students as they are on an Education degree programme rather than a specialist PE programme and hence most did not come with any particular specialist previous knowledge or interest in PE per sé. Hence the topic areas covered and the very student friendly way this text is written was very helpful.
This is a great help to students studying to be primary teachers
Highly recommended for non -specialist Physical Education trainees and specialist trainees.
This book is an essential text for trainee teachers in the Primary School setting. It covers several important areas that will enhance teaching delivery and knowledge.
