Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Primary and Secondary Health and Physical Education

Physical activity, health and wellbeing are such important pillars in a young person’s growth. With this specialisation, you’ll play a key role in developing these skills at formative times in their education journey.

What you’ll be qualified for

Your qualification will be a Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Primary and Secondary Health and Physical Education. You’ll be able to teach children and adolescents aged five to 18 years, in both primary and secondary schools and will be equipped to teach as:

  • A generalist primary school teacher
  • A specialist health and physical education primary school teacher
  • A secondary school teacher with health and physical education as your two specialist teaching areas.

What you’ll be learning

You'll develop a diverse range of knowledge and skills as you build your understanding of health and physical education, and education as a discipline. In your health and physical education discipline studies, you’ll learn about the biophysical and behavioural foundations of health and physical education – and how to bring out the best health and wellbeing in your students and communities.

By looking at how people develop movement skills, you’ll build advanced laboratory and field-based skills in sport and exercise science, and be equipped to coach across games, challenges and sports.

This is all knowledge which you'll apply to your specialist teaching areas of health and physical education. In your education discipline studies at the primary level, you'll develop your knowledge of cross curriculum priorities and the curriculum areas you will teach such as: English and literacies, mathematics and numeracy, arts education, humanities, science, digital technologies, and health and physical education. While at the secondary level you'll develop an understanding of adolescent learning and development in a secondary education environment, as well as curriculum planning, implementation and evaluation.
