The main purpose of this Course is to develop and demonstrate a broad and comprehensive range of complex skills in challenging contexts. Learners will develop the ability to use strategies to make appropriate decisions for effective performance. They will also analyse a performance, looking specifically at the
impact of mental, emotional, social and physical factors, understand what is required to develop it and then apply this knowledge to their own performance.
By actively participating in physical activities, learners will demonstrate initiative, decision-making and problem-solving. They will experience a range of roles and responsibilities, and this will enable them to develop their interpersonal skills. The Course also provides an opportunity to support the way that individual attitudes, values and behaviours are formed as physical education contributes to social, mental and emotional development.
The main aims of the Course are to enable the learner to:
♦ develop a broad and comprehensive range of complex movement and performance skills, and demonstrate them safely and effectively across a range of challenging contexts
♦ select and apply skills and make informed decisions to effectively perform in physical activities
♦ analyse mental, emotional, social and physical factors that impact on performance
♦ understand how skills, techniques and strategies combine to produce an effective performance
♦ analyse and evaluate performance to enhance personal effectiveness
