You will be encouraged to manage your own assessments and identify where you have met the required standards. Methods of assessment may include: web blogs, presentations, practical demonstrations, coaching sessions, posters, reports, leaflets, interviews, discussions. You will be assigned a project to complete that will link with the vocational nature of the course and you will also have the opportunity to work in the Osterberg Sports Centre. The programme is taught through practical training sessions supported by functional skills and ICT. Each lesson will provide you with assessment opportunities as you work to achieve your goals and targets. You will need an active passion in sport and your tutors will encourage you to discuss your own achievements as well as the issues in modern sport. Much of your assessment will be online in the form of web logs (blogs) and discussion of key points. Our Study Programme includes opportunities for you to develop your English and Maths skills as required. You may be expected to complete either functional skills or GCSE qualifications as part of your course depending on your GCSE results. There will also be opportunities to achieve additional qualifications such as work skills, drug awareness, first-aid, sport-specific coaching badges, gym instructing and other sport-related qualifications.
