This chapter explores some of the key factors associated with teaching and learning in the classroom in relation to accredited qualifications in physical education, in both academic and vocational examination formats in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Creating a stimulating and engaging learning environment to develop and maintain pupils’ enthusiasm when teaching a theory topic in the classroom is essential. The role of the teacher in this instance is then to guide and encourage the pupil to make appropriate recommendations for improvement. The current examination system in England, Northern Ireland and Wales provides a linear style of assessment, with terminal examinations at the end of a taught course. The careful use of seating plans and working groups can promote peer and collaborative learning. Revision strategies practising examination questions, learning definitions and terminology, chunking and mind maps can all be used to help pupils retain and recall information during examinations.
