  • Introduction Welcome to the Delegate Guide for the Level 5 Certificate in Primary School

    Physical Education Specialism and the Level 6 Award in Primary School Physical

    Education Subject Leadership.

    The Level 5 Certificate in Primary School Physical Education Specialism is a

    recognised qualification that aims to upskill delegates to be able to improve the

    overall delivery of the PE curriculum within a primary school. On successful completion

    of this qualification, you will be able to assist in raising the standards within primary

    school PE teaching and learning.

    The Level 6 Award in Primary School Physical Education Subject Leadership is a

    recognised qualification that aims to upskill primary generalists, to be able to lead the

    overall delivery of the primary school PE curriculum. On successful completion of this

    qualification, you will be able to take subject leadership within primary school physical

    education teaching and deliver sustainable high quality primary school PE.

    The Level 5 Certificate in Primary School Physical Education Specialism is a pre-requisite

    for the Level 6 Award in Primary School Physical Education Subject Leadership.

    There is a certain amount of written work and discussions associated with the

    assessment for this course, but the course should also be delivered in as practical

    a way as possible.

  • Course content The course is broken down into six units. Units 1 to 5 make up the Level 5 Certificate in

    Primary School Physical Education Specialism. Unit 6 is for the Level 6 Award in Primary

    School Physical Education Subject Leadership.

    In order that your Tutor/Assessor(s) understands exactly what you need to learn and

    so that you know what you will be learning during the course, each unit is broken down

    into Learning Outcomes. These Learning Outcomes are simply statements that explain

    what it is you will have to do in order to pass each unit.

    Each of the Learning Outcomes is broken down again into Assessment Criteria. These

    Assessment Criteria help to clarify the Learning Outcome and describe exactly what you

    will have to show you can do or understand in order to meet the Learning Outcome and

    therefore the requirements for that unit.

    Visit the Sports Leaders UK website to see details of the specification, Learning

    Outcomes and Assessment Criteria for each Unit.

    How the course works

    The course is delivered typically over eight days for both Levels 5 and 6. There will be a

    period of weeks in between each session to allow you to complete some tasks in a given

    primary school. There will generally be 12 to 18 months between course start date and

    the course end date.

    Your Tutor/Assessor(s) will guide you through the learning process. Your Tutor/

    Assessor(s) will outline what Delegate Assessment Tasks you are required to complete

    as part of your independent learning and will assess whether you have met the

    Assessment Criteria as and when tasks have been completed.

    Once you have shown that you can meet each of the Assessment Criteria, your Tutor/

    Assessor(s) can confirm that you have met the requirements for that unit.

    How to use this Delegate Guide

    This Delegate Guide gives you a comprehensive outline of the tasks that delegates are

    required to complete and be assessed for to meet the Assessment Criteria of both the

    Level 5 Certificate in Primary School Physical Education Specialism and the Level 6

    Award in Primary School Physical Education Subject Leadership.

    Many of the Delegate Assessment Tasks in this Delegate Guide are directly linked to

    the tasks that a Professional Learning Centre will deliver as part of the tutor contact

    sessions. It may be possible for delegates to be assessed during the delivery of the

    course. Assessment records will need to be kept by the Tutor/Assessor(s) and the

    delegate is required to keep evidence of the tasks completed to fulfil the requirements

    of the tasks in the Delegate Guide.

    The Delegate Assessment Tasks do not always need to be completed in isolation. Your

    Tutor/Assessor(s) may ask you to produce a piece of work that includes a number of

    tasks, maybe in a presentation or a report that covers a number of tasks.

  • Assessment

    There is no formal examination at the end of either the Level 5 Certificate in Primary School

    Physical Education Specialism or the Level 6 Award in Primary School Physical Education

    Subject Leadership. Instead, your Tutor/Assessor(s) may use a variety of assessment

    methods to make a decision about your PE specialism and/or subject leadership including

    observation, written work and listening to what you say and do. Your Tutor/Assessor(s) may

    expect to see any work you have completed during the course that may contribute to your

    assessment process. These could include reports, provision audits, curriculum maps and

    lesson plans. Your Tutor/Assessor(s) may use a question and answer style method as part of

    your assessment, relating to specific Learning Outcomes and they may also request some

    independent feedback from another Tutor/Assessor who has observed you leading.

    In order to see if you are meeting the Assessment Criteria for each unit your Tutor/

    Assessor(s) can use any number of assessment methods. However, the assessment

    method(s) that they choose must be relevant to the Assessment Criteria they are

    assessing and meet any specific needs that you might have.

    Successfully completing the course

    If, by the end of the PE specialism aspects of the course, you have shown that you can

    meet all of the Assessment Criteria for each unit of the Level 5 Certificate in Primary

    School Physical Education Specialism qualification you will have successfully passed

    the course and will be awarded the Level 5 qualification.

    If you decide to progress onto and complete the PE subject leadership aspect of the

    course and have shown that you can meet all of the Assessment Criteria for the Level 6

    Award in Primary School Physical Education Subject Leadership you will be awarded

    the Level 6 qualification.

    If you have not met these requirements by the end of the course, your Tutor/Assessor(s)

    may be able to give you further opportunities to continue your learning and you may

    successfully pass the course at some stage in the future. These opportunities will only

    be made available for up to three years after you first started the course.

    Appeals procedure

    If you have any queries regarding an assessment decision speak to your Tutor/

    Assessor(s) about it. However, if this does not resolve the issue then contact Sports

    Leaders UK who will investigate further. If the concern is still not resolved the case

    will be referred to the Sports Leaders UK senior management team, or further to

    that, an independent body. For a copy of the appeal procedures please email

    contact@sportsleaders.org.

    Accident responsibility

    Sports Leaders UK does not accept responsibility or liability for any injury or loss sustained

    by you, your Tutor/Assessor(s) or any other person during any part of the course.
