Will my education and gained experience be suitable for the course.
I have gained a Undergraduate Degree in Sports Management (from University of South Wales) as well as a Masters in Sport and International Development (University of Brighton). Also studied PE at A Level, and achieved basic A-C in English, Mathematics and Science.
Following education I have worked as a Primary Schools Sports Coach in a range of local schools for the past 2.5 years - will be three come September... Hence have Level 2 qualifications in Multi Skills and Cricket, as well as a Level 1 Football, and introductory awards in Badminton and Gymnastics. Have become Head Coach at the local cricket club in a voluntary capacity for the past 3 years working with 11-15 year olds.
I'm aware some secondary school experience would be beneficial!
Any help would be really appreciated, thanks in advance

Sounds like you've got lots of relevant experience, but as you've identified, a bit of experience in secondary would help. It would also probably be useful to look into the current GCSE spec for PE so that you're familiar with that.

You probably know this, but it can be very difficult to secure a teaching role after training as a teacher in secondary PE. It will depend somewhat on what part of the country you live in, but you may end up having to move to find a job, or spend some time doing supply.
