Great achievement has been obtained in the construction of the teaching staff for physical education for the past 50 years since the founding of the People's Republic of China, though it has experienced a tortuous process of development. Up to date, a sufficient, qualified and steady teaching staff for physical education has been basically formed. However, from the viewpoint of training PE teachers, there still exist many problems. The training system is old fashioned. More attention has been paid to the number of teachers, while less to their quality. Importance has been attached to knowledge instruction, while overlooking competency training. Stress has been laid on the technical courses, while ignoring the theoretical courses. Education of “specialists” has been taken seriously, neglecting that of “all round persons”. Those problems all do harm to the improvement of the constitutions of the whole teaching staff for PE in China. Therefore, by reviewing the construction and development of the teaching staff for PE in China in the past 50 years, on the basis of analyzing the existed problems, a new conception is raised on the future pattern of the training of PE teachers.
