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

The Minor in Elementary School Physical Education equips you to be trained as a physical education teacher in the public and private school system where you can pass on your love of sport, activity, recreation, health and fitness to children and teens who need a positive and inspirational role model.

Students must meet the external requirements of the British Columbia Teachers Federation (BCTF) and the Professional Year Program (PYP).  Students can take a concurrent education program available from Trinity Western University that enables graduation within a five years or apply after a four year degree for the two year PYP program.

Prospective teachers can select from a Bachelor of Arts, a Concentration, or a Minor in Elementary School Physical Education depending on their preference for teaching in a secondary or elementary school setting. It is essential for students interested in a teaching career to consult with TWU’s School of Education during the first year of study to ensure that specific program requirements will be met.
