Effectiveness and quality of physical education teaching process is determined by many factors. The key factor in this
process is the teacher, particularly his/hers abilities to plan, organize and realize the PE teaching process according to
students abilities and interests, following the prescribed curriculum and using all available resources and equipment.
Educating future physical education teachers is not a simple process of transmission of knowledge, but it is also a process
of training for practical work of students – future teachers. The aim of this research is to analyze and compare the initial
education of future PE subject teachers and general classroom teachers that will teach PE in primary schools, studying
at the Universities in Macedonia and Bulgaria. The analyses of documentation and comparative analyses are used as
a research method. Similarity in some components of the programs are established. Similar study programs and exam
requirements could be note at Teaching faculties in Macedonia and Bulgaria that prepare generalist teachers as well
as certain similarities between requirements for PE specialists educated at Faculty of sport and PE and National Sport
Academy. Different requirements and approaches in realization of teaching practice and practical work of students’
future generalist’s teachers and PE specialist in Macedonia and Bulgaria can be outlined. Recommendations are given
