Welcome to episode 75 of The PE Umbrella podcast! Joining me Under the Umbrella today is Physical Education teacher from here in the UK, Kate Tiffen. As a teacher of 17 years, Kate has experienced working on both sides of the fence, both in State schools and Independent school, where she currently teaches. As the first Independent school PhysEd teacher I have had on the show, I was keen to find out 'How the other half live' and if the PhysEd side of things is all it's cracked up to be. During the episode I probe Kate about the value placed on PE as a subject in both sectors and what core differences she sees between the two. Do both provide a high quality Physical Education? Is the curriculum coverage the same? Is Independent PhysEd the pinnacle, or is there still more to be done? All of this as well as the show favourites are discussed during todays show, so come on over, and join us under The PE Umbrella!
