A Level Physical Education
Students following an A Level course in physical education are given an opportunity, through experiential learning to develop an understanding of the physiological and psychological processes which underpin performance in physical activity. The course is assessed through practical ability to perform, analyse and evaluate the execution of core skills in a fully competitive context. There is also a written examination.
||The A level PE course consists of two examined papers (70%) and a practical performance in one chosen sport (30%). The examined units consist of study in topics such as applied anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, skill acquisition, sport psychology, sport in society and technology in sport.
Level 3 BTEC Sport
The Level 3 Sport course takes a learner-centered approach to the curriculum, with a unit-based structure. A range of assessment methods give learners a flexible learning experience. Learners will have to demonstrate practical competency in two chosen sports; undertake career application activities; learn about healthy, active lifestyles through a controlled assessment; and undertake an exam on the anatomy and physiology of the human body.
