“Leadership for All” Sports Leadership and Content and Language Integrated Learning Based Education Intervention to Enhance Secondary Education Pupils’ Competencies through Quality Physical Education



This article draws from a specific Physical Education intervention carried out in 2015 at Garbí Pere Vergés School, in Catalonia. The intervention was undertaken as a form of teaching unit to support the survey “Quality Physical Education (QPE) in Catalonia, promise and reality: a European regional perspective”. A multi-method teaching and evaluation strategies such as peer tutoring and project based learning were adopted during the intervention to promote specific encounters between students, and reinforcing the importance of leadership skills used throughout the teaching unit. Leadership skills were used as conceptual approaches alongside of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) methodology. Although pupils presented different levels of interaction, a wide range of scholars were benefited as the intervention met general secondary education based competencies, specific Physical Education competencies, as well as emotional intelligence, personal and social values.

... In each of the interventions carried out since the beginning of the project back in 2017, FIEP Catalunya has played a key role in order to determine the topic worth of study, selecting the school where the intervention is taking place and ensuring a number of stakeholders to produce the best possible Teaching Unit.

This article draws from a specific project called “Mou el dit! No esperis que ho facin per tu” (Catalan name for the project), created in 2017 as a tool for enhancing Quality Physical Education (McLennan & Thompson, 2015) and creating a benchmark of teaching resources in order to spread the QPE principles for social transformation among PE Teachers and training institutions. Impacting teacher’s future professional development, improving student’s social interaction and critical thinking as well as acknowledging Physical Education as a tool for Social Transformation are some of the goals. The initiative is promoted by FIEP Catalunya, following the need of creating specific guidelines for implementing QPE as a result of the survey “QPE in Catalonia, promise and reality: a European regional perspective” (Castillo, Solà, & Sebastiani, 2015). The main objective of the study was to assess the dissemination of QPE principles in school placements, based on a critical review of theoretical patterns established by several institutions worldwide; confronted with the level of knowledge about the topic worth of study, appearance of QPE principles in educational/training initiatives for PE teachers and daily basis facilitation in Physical Education lessons regionwide.
