| The following details are designed to outline the demands of BEd 4 placement. Specifically these include teaching PE to S1-S6, including a gradual introduction of Higher Still Physical Education with the aim of students having responsibility for teaching Higher Still classes as the placement progresses through the 8* week period. Also, opportunity should be given to become familiar with current initiatives, which involve the PE dept.

iii consideration of current curricular development in core, Standard Grade and Higher Still Physical Education
