How to use this Delegate Assessment Guide
This guide gives you a comprehensive outline of the tasks that delegates are required to complete and be assessed against 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 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 Assessment Guide.
Successfully completing the course
If, by the end of the PE specialism aspects of the course, you have shown that you can meet all 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 are eligible to progress onto and complete the PE subject leadership aspect of the course, you must show that you can meet all the Assessment Criteria for the Level 6 Award in Primary School Physical Education Subject Leadership you will then 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.
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 then please follow the process as outlined in our Appeals Policy.
