Why Elementary School Physical Education?

Was P.E. your favourite subject in grade school? Why not get paid to do what you love most?

Why Elementary School Physical Education?

Was P.E. your favourite subject in grade school? Why not get paid to do what you love most?

The Physical Education stream will equip you to become a P.E. teacher (K-12) in the public and private school system where you can pass on your love of sport to children and teens who need an inspirational, faith-filled coach.

Students in this stream must meet the external requirements of the British Columbia Teachers Federation (BCTF) and the Professional Development Program (PDP), a one-year course available from Trinity Western that immediately follows the Human Kinetics degree.

Prospective teachers need to have at least 18 semester hours of upper-level credit in Human Kinetics along with a second teaching area consisting of at least 18 semester hours of upper-level credit. It is also important for students to check with the specific PDP programs that they are planning to attend as early as second year to determine if there are specific program requirements required.
