In terms of teaching, the future job holder should strengthen the content of the sport-psychological aspects of sports science studies in the teacher degree courses, particularly in the training of primary school teachers, as well as in the institute’s Bachelor's and Master's programs. It is also desirable that the future job holder develops training concepts for teachers in the subject of sports and for trainers in recreational and high-performance sports.
