In each year you’ll undertake studies in the methods of teaching health, physical and sport education.
You’ll also teach in schools, and these classes enable you to meet the practical requirements for accreditation as a teacher with the Victorian Institute of Teaching.
The program fosters a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle and a willingness to develop this attitude in schools and the community.
You'll be introduced to the principles of teaching physical and applied exercise sciences, and complete in-depth studies in the foundation areas of human structure and function (anatomy and physiology).
You'll extend your study of health and exercise sciences into areas including exercise physiology and kinesiology.
You'll also begin studying your second teaching method, which may include biology, advanced health or maths. Other method areas are also available.
Knowledge in health-related physical activity and practice is emphasised.
Years 3 and 4
You'll consolidate your knowledge of health and exercise sciences with studies in biomechanics, applied exercise physiology, nutrition and motor learning and control. You'll also need to complete an AUSTSWIM and first aid qualification.
As a fourth year student, you'll mentor first year students in their teaching. This is beneficial for both the mentor and the mentored.
