PSHE Association Report: Trainee teachers and PSHE education: A snapshot

A report containing research conducted by the PSHE Association into how trainee teachers learn about PSHE education through the analysis of the experiences of trainee teachers going through ITE in the West Midlands.

Key findings include:

  • PSHE education being often conflated with pastoral provision, so providers are unaware that they are failing to address PSHE

  • Organisational attitudes have a demonstrable impact on the quality of trainee teachers’ experiences

  • The level of PSHE input differs depending on secondary subject specialism.
