Recommended Prior Learning

Be recommended by your Year 11 Physical Education teacher. If you have not taken this subject at Year 11, then entry at the discretion of the Head of Faculty.

This course is 100% internally assessed and made up of both theory and practical components. The course builds on the basic concepts covered in Level 1 such as functional anatomy, motor skills, bio-mechanics and principles and methods of training. It also includes mountain biking  or turbo touch as part of the performance standard and  leadership strategies developed through working with a group of students and going on camp in term one. Students will be assessed through achievement standards.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
