Level 3 Certificate in Supporting The Delivery Of Physical Education & School Sport
This qualification introduces (or consolidates knowledge, depending on previous experience and qualifications) learners to a number of roles in providing Physical Education and School Sport (PESS). While it is delivered through the medium of PESS, the skills may be used by learners aspiring to work in other sporting roles, such as coaching.
This qualification prepares learners for employment in a school sport setting through providing an introduction to opportunities to work as a physical education and school sport professional, such as a children’s activity professional; sports development officer; sports coach; sports volunteer or leader.
The qualification can help you become a qualified Teaching Assistant (TA) or Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA). This is because four of the components within this qualification are available within the complete Level 3 Award in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools.
