Exploring pre-service physical education teachers' trauma-related learning experiences in schools
This paper explores pre-service physical education (PE) teachers' experiences of working with trauma-affected young people whilst on placement in schools. It involved an online professional learning programme which facilitated reflective discussions to explore their experiences. The pre-service teachers revealed that the school context influenced their trauma-related learning, which took place across multiple sites throughout the school, with both teachers and pupils. These findings evidence the need to support pre-service PE teachers’ school-based learning, encouraging them to explore the broader context of the school, seek supportive relationships and co-develop strategies to create positive and safe learning environments.
