|Description||This qualification supports the achievement of the Governments school sport policy and lasting legacy of the 2012 Games. It qualifies you to deliver/support the delivery of low risk activities that contribute to a physical education and school sport programme through curriculum-based and/or extra-curricular activities; and prepares you for employment in a school sport setting through providing an introduction to opportunities for you to work as a physical education and school sport professional for: e.g. a higher level teaching assistant, teaching assistant, sports coach, sports development officer, sports volunteer or sports leader role. In March 2013 the Association for Physical Education stated that the minimum requirement for any adult working in a Physical Education or School Sport context must be working towards the Level 3 qualification by 2015. In addition to this qualification, where activities go beyond low risk, adults working in a school environment should also have a Level 2 National Governing Body Award qualification for each activity they deliver.|

|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
The qualification comprises eight units. These units require you to show that you can effectively plan, conduct and evaluate PESS activity programmes, which meet the requirements of the qualification. The first four units satisfy the Award of Learning Support Assistant (LSA) and the safeguarding unit included also satisfies workforce induction under the Safeguarding legislation. Other units include Communication and professional relationships, Schools as Organisations, Child and Young Person Development and Assessment for Learning.
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
We use a number of associate tutors who are qualified physical education teachers and who are working at a national level. Some tutors are Ofsted trained, others have worked on international education programmes. One of the tutors was the author for this qualification and provides the national induction training for all tutors. All of our tutors have attended the induction training to deliver this qualification.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
While it is delivered through the medium of PESS, the skills may be used by you to aspire to work in other sporting roles, such as coaching. Suitable prerequisites include the Level 2 PESS qualification, GCSE PE, Level 2 BTEC etc. You should be at least 16 years of age to enrol on the course.
It will be assessed by your tutor using a range of methods. You will be provided with a learner pack with assessment tasks listed and these must all be completed. There will also be two assessor observations of your teaching / coaching.
