Abstract

Objectives: The preparation and permanent training of teachers and managers of Physical Education has become an area of interest and concern because it constitutes a strategic space that enables the improvement and transformation of the teachers’ practice by using more motivating methods with their students. The objectives of this paper were to analyze the preparation and training of Physical Education teachers and managers from Manicaragua (Cuba) and to design a practical proposal, through a system of workshops, for the improvement of the preparation and training of Physical Education teachers and managers.

Methods: The sample of this study was composed of 11 teachers of Physical Education, 4 Physical Education methodologists and 5 Physical Education managers of the Municipality Manicaragua (Cuba). The methods used were analysis of documents, surveys, observation, interviews and criteria of specialists.

Findings: Currently there are teachers without enough pedagogical training and with methodological deficiencies, and managers without the necessary experience to help them to eliminate these difficulties. This situation points to the need for a differentiated methodological preparation and training of these teachers to take on the challenges of contemporary Physical Education classes.

Conclusions: Taking into account the results of this study, a system of workshops is presented for the preparation and training of Physical Education teachers and managers in Manicaragua. This workshop proposal was valued very positively by the specialists surveyed, given the role played in the preparation and training for the professional performance of Physical Education teachers and managers.
