[en] The training of future physical education (PE) teachers has changed over the years. Different demands adapted to new social realities in schools and new curricula require the addition and/or cancellation of contents at the universities and training colleges. While many school and university curricular programs worldwide already include the topic of inclusive PE, Germany has for a long time segregated pupils according to their intellectual capacities and not fully adapted the national curricula for PE at schools yet.
This paper outlines the development and status quo of PE teacher training in Germany. Ministerial demands and orders as well as the curricula of schools, universities and teachers’ training colleges are analyzed to determine whether and/or how far inclusive PE is incorporated. The aim of this study is not to give a complete national overview of the implementation of inclusive PE in teacher training. However, through a regional focus, it shall rather be demonstrated how German ministries as well as other institutions related to education, and how university and teachers’ training colleges deal with the topic of inclusive PE. The present study thereby analyzes whether and if yes how far future PE teachers in secondary schools currently possess the option or the commitment to prepare themselves to teach inclusive classes.
