|The focus of this half course is on nature and role of core Physical Education in the Secondary Physical Education curriculum. Students will be introduced to concepts surrounding core Physical Education and how this co-exists with certificated Physical Education. The aims of the core Physical Education will be considered along with the implications of how there are generated given the absence of official arrangements. The potential of core Physical Education to contribute to pupils' experience will be examined with specific reference to the National Priorities in Education (SEES, 2000). Models of curricula that could be employed in Physical Education will be studied and students will take part in practical exemplar sessions of these models.
