The 1st4sport Level 1 Award for Activators (Deskercise) is ideal for learners interested in helping people to tackle the effects of sustained sedentary lifestyles.

Your learners will gain the knowledge and skills to facilitate desk-based activities in environments in which people sit for sustained periods of time, such as:

  • schools
  • colleges
  • universities
  • offices.
This will enable them to tackle the impact of physical inactivity by empowering people to integrate more movement into their daily lives, supporting wider health, well-being and participation initiatives.

Your learners will also gain a key understanding of the importance of physical activity in the modern work or learning environment, and how to promote general health and well-being in typically sedentary environments.

This qualification is supported by UK Coaching and representatives from Premier Education.
