Students will experience and apply considerations for facilitating engaging, inclusive, developmentally appropriate and safe learning environments for diverse audiences. They develop a range of understandings and competencies for interpreting and managing the HPE environment to facilitate delivery of effective experiences and outcomes.

A central tenet of HPE is an inclusive curriculum that seeks to enhance the experiential opportunities for all children and incorporates the social justice principles of equity, diversity and supportive environments. Design of relevant learning experiences aligned with assessment processes; management of classes and environments; incorporating pertinent general capabilities into the learning context, and the impact of these considerations is explored.

Students have the opportunity to analyse, apply and evaluate skills and develop confidence through experiencing and presenting movement and health learning. Through engagement in course learning experiences, it is expected that students will become increasingly independent practitioners and develop competence is sourcing current, accurate information and appropriate resources for HPE.
