KS4 – Years 9-10 Examination PE

Subject statement: Edexcel BTEC Level 2 First Award in Sport is a new and exciting course for students that enjoy and excel in PE.  BTEC allows students to develop their knowledge and understanding of sport and PE, but with a work related slant, for example students will take on the role of a Fitness Instructor, a Sports Leader and a Sports Psychologist.  This will require the candidate to have a full understanding of the components of fitness, methods of training, principles of training, fitness tests and their purpose and evaluation and modification of training methods.

Exam board:  Pearson Edexcel

Overview of topics covered: Students study the following topics:

  • Fitness for Sport and Excellence
  • Practical Sports Performance
  • Training for Personal Fitness (Planning and following a fitness program)
  • Leading Sports Activities (Sports Leadership)

Nature of Assessment: The assessment process for the course is split between two methods:

  • 25% of the course is externally accessed via an online computerised test,
  • 75% is ongoing throughout the lesson and is a variety of coursework and practical assignments.

Students learn and develop their knowledge and understanding about sections of units and then complete an assignment.  Each assignment is written by the PE department to ensure that assessment is personalised and all students can complete the course to the best of their ability.  The assignments are both internally and externally verified.
Within the practical units of the course the students are assessed in at least two chosen sports.
