Describe how the pupils will be encouraged to develop Skills for Learning, Skills for Life and Skills for Work:

Through the nature of the unit students will be encouraged to develop key skills to be able to communicate effectively in a sporting context.  This will involve students delivering short activities to each other and also integrating with School clubs to develop knowledge and confidence in setting up equipment and H&S procedures.

Throughout, students will be encouraged to use IT to develop certain parts of their course work.

Numeracy will also play a key part especially in the fitness aspects where they will need to look at timings of activities in relation to appropriate aspects of fitness – distances and formulas will also be implemented.
