They will gain the knowledge and skills to plan, deliver and evaluate sport and activity sessions with a community setting, predominantly working with inactive participants.

Working with other providers, your learner will gain a key understanding of when and how to interact with other organisations to support this area of focus.

This qualification includes a pathway unit on technical coaching requirements for sport and physical activity.

It is supported by the Chartered Institute for the management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) and maps to their professional standard for Coach and endorsed by UK Coaching.
