How does the 'generalist' teacher get their experience and knowledge of Physical Education? Or do they need to? Hello, I am writing this thread to ask for some feedback with regards to the question above. Do you believe as teachers you have had enough training in terms of physical education? Did you get enough training during your initial teacher training? Are you now still getting continuing professional development within your school with regards to PE? The reason I am asking these questions is in relation to a dissertation idea for my final year of BEd Primary Education (QTS). I am hoping that some of you may either agree or disagree that you have been provided with enough knowldge and skills to teach PE confidently and successfully. Something I reguarly notice on placment is some teachers lack of enthusiasm for the subject and I have noticed more recently with the funding that many schools are bringing in specialists to teach PE but is that sustainable for the long run? Also if the teachers themselves arent involved in those PE lessons then they themselves arent gaining anything from having the specialists in? other than getting time to complete other tasks whilst their class does PE. If you can give any opinions on this it would be much appreciated!
