It encourages personal development through practical participation and performance in a range of sports and exercise activities. It also gives learners the opportunity to develop the communication skills needed for working in the sport sector, as they progress through the course.

Applying the Principles of Sport and Activity (written assignments)
In order to gain a high grade in this subject, you will need to be competent at working independently, possess good IT skills, able to work as part of a group and meet deadlines.
