Physical education

Physical Education is “education through the physical”. Sport and physical education are important tools to raise future generations in the spirit of the core values promoted by the Council of Europe such as democracy, human rights and respect for rules.Participation per se in physical education and sport does not necessarily facilitate an ethical development in children and youth. Physical educators and sport coaches need to organize young  people’s experiences  of  games  and  activities

in  such  a  way  as  to  make  the ethical  dimensions  of sport  explicit.Physical education aims to develop youth’s physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to use these to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops people confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation. These, together with the nurturing of positive values and attitudes in physical education, provide a good foundation for people and specifically youth lifelong and life-wide learning.


Youth people are expected to develop a skill set that reflects their engagement with higher education. These skills are also essential to a successful career and a well-rounded, intellectually rewarding life. The ability to be able to read efficiently, write effectively, speak fluently and research methodically will help people make the most of thetime spent in schools, but that’s not all.The demand for relevant knowledge, skills and attitudes

changes over time. To deal with these changes, people need to be equipped with a set of key competences – including literacy, numeracy and digital competence. Critical thinking, creativity and the ability to work as part of a team are equally important to build sustainable careers and become active citizens.  Education and training play a crucial role in enabling young people to develop these competences and, thereby, provide the conditions for the best possible start in life.


Education has a substantial impact on employment prospects. Usually, and traditionally, as education increases so does the type of work people will be doing. Without an education, and it doesn’t have to be formal, people are relegated to menial and often laborious work. As people progress and start using your mind instead of muscles then so does the career grow.And there can be specifically stated education and that it doesn’t have

to mean formal education. There are plenty of people who are quite successful, i.e. Bill Gates, Zuckerberg, other programmers, who are not formally educated. Meaning they don’t have a terminal degree of any sort. But what they are is educated. They educate themselves.Education provides essential skills and knowledge required to carry out a certain occupation or profession.It develops creative ability in an individual that is essential employment and employment generation.
