Aims of the course.



Students studying this course will undertake both theory and practical lessons. The theory lessons will support them with the coursework and exam element of the course.


Course Content

Students studying this course will complete four units of the specification titled;


  • Unit 1: Fitness for Sport and Exercise
  • Unit 2: Practical Performance in Sport
  • Unit 3: Applying the Principles of Personal Training
  • Unit 5: The Sports Performer in Action










Students will complete four units of work, three of which are mandatory and one optional specialist unit. The three mandatory units consist of Unit 1, 2 and 3 which are assessed using different methods. Unit 1 is an External Exam, Unit 2 Internal coursework and Unit 3 is an internal synoptic assessment. Students will need to achieve a minimum of a Level 2 Pass in each of the four units to gain a Level 2 qualification. If students do not meet the criteria for a Level 2 Pass they will have the opportunity to gain a Level 1 Qualification.


The externally assessed unit will be assessed through the completion of a 1 hour examination featuring multiple choice and short answer questions.  This will account for 25% of the overall grade. The remaining 75% of the grade will be given through submission of coursework through assignments attached to each unit.


Students successfully completing the course will achieve the equivalent of one GCSE grade.
