Does teaching physical education mean coaching sports all day?

That’s a large part of the job - which can be really fun and satisfying - but as you know, sports teach us about far more than simply how to hit a ball or jump a hurdle. As a physical education teacher, you’ll strengthen your students’ social skills, help them understand the value of wellness in their lives, and improve their focus and abilities in the classroom. Remember what it was like picking teams, competing, and being a team captain? These are formative experiences, and as a physical education teacher you can use these moments to foster inclusiveness, responsibility, cooperation and diversity. Our understanding of wellness has come a long way, and you can be at the forefront of engaging the next generation with an understanding of what wellness means in the twenty-first century. How do you start? You’ll need a bachelor’s degree in education, with a focus on physical education. You can study online or on-campus. When you’re ready, you can advance your career with a postgraduate qualification, like a MSc in physical education. What’s in it for you? Your comprehension of the human body and movement will grow immensely. You’ll also probably learn CPR and first aid – excellent life-saving skills to acquire. And there are plenty of other job perks, too. You won’t be stuck behind a desk or in a classroom all day. Instead, you’ll find yourself in gyms, on the track, or outdoors most of the day. The most rewarding part of the job? Connecting with students in a meaningful way.
