Physical education is an integral part of the educational system. In the EU Work Plan for Sport 2014–17 it is emphasized
that physical education teachers are key agents for putting physical and sport policies into practice. The aim of the
research is to study main elements of the physical education systems in three Balkan countries – Bulgaria, Macedonia
and Slovenia. The following criteria are outlined: status of physical education in the educational system; learning
programs; professional qualification of teachers; buildings and facilities for physical education classes. The research
methods that have been used include a study of educational documentation, analysis of specialized literature sources,
and comparative analysis. In the three countries of the research, physical education is an obligatory school subject in
all levels of their education systems. In Bulgaria, official programs in physical education with concrete educational
content and clear instructions have been adopted. In the secondary schools in Bulgaria, Macedonia and Slovenia there
are qualified specialists in physical education. Generalist teachers providing physical education classes in the primary
school do not have the necessary preparation and the adequate skills for teaching physical education. There is lack of
appropriate buildings and facilities for realization of the curriculum in some regions of the countries. Future activities
are intended for the professional qualification in physical education and sport for generalist school teachers, and for the
continuing professional development of all sports pedagogues.
