  • Practical Training

    Mandatory parts of all PES curriculum plans are pedagogical practices with the subjects “Preparation for Practice” and “Practice.” The preparation for the practice is in the range of 1/1 with 3 credits. The practice takes 75 hours and is for 3 credits. The innovation of both subjects lies in the fact that all students of the PES study program, with various specializations, will attend these two subjects of pedagogical practice. The essence of “Preparation for Practice” is to familiarize students with various work-related activities of physical education experts and to practice pedagogical activities in the main areas of their possible future employment. “Practice” will directly follow “Preparation for Practice”, where the students will deepen their theoretical and practical knowledge used when organizing leisure physical activities and will practically verify their educational skills and abilities.

    Students of the individual specializations will also complete a practice relevant to the given specialization. It will enable students to apply knowledge and skills in a real environment (Sports Management in the subject “Professional Practice”, Regeneration and Nutrition in Sports in the subject of “Practice”, Training in the subjects “Training-methodological Practice” 1 and 2, Special Education of Security Forces in the subject of “Practice”, Referee in Team Sports in subjects “Referee Practice” 1 to 4).
