Level 4 Supporting Pupils’ Wellbeing Through Physical Education 

Created in partnership with the Association for Physical Education (afPE), this programme enables colleagues to become specialists in supporting the emotional and social wellbeing of pupils through PE. 

We know that good wellbeing in children and young people is paramount to them developing into well-rounded adults. In fact, we believe it is key to them building the resilience and confidence needed to face the opportunities and challenges that life will offer them.

We also believe that those teaching physical education are key to supporting the emotional wellbeing of pupils through the curriculum. This is why, together with our partners, the Association of Physical Education (afPE), we created the Level 4 Qualification in Supporting Pupils’ Wellbeing Through Physical Education.

This nationally recognised qualification enables delegates to become specialists in supporting the emotional and social wellbeing of pupils through physical education. It has been designed to be delivered face-to-face or via blended learning, offering greater flexibility and accessibility.

The Level 4 Qualification in Supporting Pupils’ Wellbeing Through Physical Education is open to both primary and secondary school teachers with Qualified Teacher Statues (QTS) involved in the teaching of physical education.
