Physical education as a leader, teacher and coach
Author(s): Veereshkumar B Vijapur
Every profession considers the development and application of a Professional Code of Ethics and Conduct (PCEC) as a means of maintaining acceptable professional standards. As for the teaching and leadership profession, teachers are supposed to exhibit a high level of professionalism, responsibility, integrity, competence, character, respect and honesty. Such moral virtues are imperative for Physical Education (PE) teachers since their work involves close interactions with students in and outside the classroom and school contexts. The purpose of this study was based on secondary sources. In this paper observed that the most common assumption about leadership is that ‘leaders are born not made’. These who hold this view maintain that qualities like initiative, courage, intelligence and humor, which together predestine a man to be a leader, are inborn. The people have “natural potential” for leadership which varies from person to person, and it requires “environment” for an individual to grow into a leader. Without followership, there is no leadership. Coaches we must first consider their philosophy and how it will guide their practice that is called as coach”. We have consider that the coaches must be committed to the athletics and their learning. they must be hand to guide practice, to work with individuals and to teach strategies, techniques, values and sportsmanship- day- to- day rain are shine. The coaches’ commitment is just one piece of the puzzle though, as the athletics commitments are equal important issue. Physical Education enables a person to facilitate one’s duties and responsibilities to oneself, to the family, to the society and to the Nation and help him to live a successful and meaningful life that inspires and guides the younger generation. Both the laypersons and professional educators believe firmly that the effectiveness of an educational programme is largely determined by the quality of teachers as they interpret, imbibe and transmit knowledge and intellectual traditions from generation to generation.
