Teaching Sport and Leisure 14+

    By

    How do you teach a multi-faceted subject like Sport and Leisure? Drawing on years of teaching and lecturing experience, Huggett and Manley explain the growing importance of Sport and Leisure within society - from the government's policies to combat obesity to the London Olympics - then look at the various qualifications that are available to those who want to follow a career in the industry. The authors address different aspects of sport and leisure including areas such as competitive sports, community sports development, the health and fitness industry and adventurous outdoor activity. They consider the skills, knowledge and understanding learners need to develop, taking into account the life experiences and aspirations of different groups of learners. They also look at the organizations that provide education and training, and the government initiatives that support their activities. This text supports trainee and experienced teachers involved in developing exciting and engaging Sport and Leisure programmes for learners 14+ whether in schools, colleges, higher education or in-service training. It brings together the theory and practice of learning for Sport and Leisure as a vocational pathway, offering the educational practitioner a pedagogical framework for the delivery of their subject. About the Teaching 14+ series Written to support the unique challenges of teaching vocational subjects, the Teaching 14+ series provides the pedagogical skills required to become a successful teacher. Alongside coverage of issues and debates, the series includes interactive exercises, case studies and activities that can be used to develop a variety of teaching and learning strategies to improve the delivery of these subjects.
