Health and wellbeing - responsibility for all: Are all ready for the responsibility?

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In the current education climate, Health and Wellbeing has been given prominence in Scotland, with all teachers given the responsibility for Health and Wellbeing across the curriculum. (Education Scotland, n.d). Alongside this, Health and Wellbeing teaching has been established as a way of challenging health inequalities in Scotland (Chief Medical Officer, 2011). Given the importance that is placed on Health and Wellbeing it is imperative that the next generation of teachers are prepared to deliver ‘learning through health and wellbeing that promotes, confidence, independent thinking and positive attitudes and dispositions’ (Scottish Executive, 2006).
The aim of this research, a work in progress, is to investigate the perceived impact of Initial Teacher Education (ITE) courses on probationary teachers’ levels of preparedness to deliver Health and Wellbeing, focusing on twelve Physical Education graduates within the University.
