Why AQA Physical Education?

Our Physical Education qualifications allow students to play to their strengths and gain dynamic skills for further education and a healthy future.

Our current specifications teach students to evaluate performance and suggest plans for improvement. They also cover the benefits of healthy living alongside topics like the role of media in sport.

GCSE and A-level specifications are changing for first teaching in September 2016. There's new content, but our support and resources will help you every step of the way.

We have worked closely with teachers and higher education to develop qualifications that you'll enjoy teaching, and students of all abilities will enjoy studying.

AQA do understand how hectic it is to be a teacher and they really keep us up to date and show their awareness.
