Physical Education Teacher Education
Professional preparation programs that offer specialization in Physical Education may apply for CAEP Program Review with National Recognition.
Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) accredits teacher preparation programs. SHAPE America is the CAEP Specialized Professional Association (SPA) for physical education, and as such, SHAPE America develops the guidelines for physical education teacher education.
2008 Initial Physical Education Teacher Education Standards
Programs seeking recognition through CAEP/SHAPE America must use the 2008 Initial PETE standards. SHAPE America is working to revise these standards. More information will be provided about the revised standards once they become available.
