Entry Guidelines

The best preparation for this course is for learners to engage in and achieve 10 credits from the Level 2 Physical Education course. Entry can also be discussed with the Head of Faculty if PE was not studied in the previous year.

This course looks at maintaining well being for life. Students will evaluate exercise programmes and sports skills drawing on their knowledge of physiological principles. A research project investigating a current sports related issue is also undertaken. On the practical side, students look at how to improve their skill level in a practical performance and in a Duathlon event. The course is internally assessed through achievement standards with 16 credits available throughout the year.

This fully internal course is UE approved.
