    These qualifications have been developed in conjunction with a local authority to support staff working in primary schools who are not specialist teachers of Physical Education. Their purpose is to develop the appropriate knowledge, skills and understanding to promote and embed Physical Education and sport in primary schools to ensure positive outcomes and achievement for children and young people.

    The objective of the Gateway Qualifications Level 3 Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Physical Education in Primary Schools qualification is to develop knowledge and/or skills relevant to undertaking a teaching and learning role in Physical Education. It aims to upskill primary school teachers, higher level teaching assistants and teaching assistants with experience across year groups and pupil groups to improve the overall delivery of the physical education curriculum within primary schools. This qualification will assist in raising the standards within primary school physical education teaching.

    The objective of the Gateway Qualifications Level 4 Certificate in Leadership and Management in Physical Education in Primary Schools qualification is to develop knowledge and/or skills relevant to undertaking a leadership and management role in Physical Education in Primary schools. The learning builds upon the learning objectives of the Level 3 Certificate (above) ensuring delegates understand how to lead sustainable development within primary school physical education. This includes understanding the role of an effective subject leader and how to plan, deliver, review, monitor and lead real systemic, sustainable change in the quality of overall provision.

    These qualifications support the on-going professional development of staff in primary schools who wish to undertake roles in delivery and management of physical education in primary schools. New statutory regulations require that teachers (QTS) must engage in continued professional development and that through their annual performance management processes this must be discussed.
