The course aims to introduce candidates to the fundamentals of movement and sending/receiving skills through the development of basic tactical concepts for attacking and defending. Modified games of 1 v 1 and 2 v 2 are explored using a set of specially designed activity cards. With a strong emphasis on teaching methodology creative approaches to improving leadership skills through communication, use of rules, equipment and group/session organisation are explored. The course is not examined and an attendance certificate is awarded to those who complete the course.

All candidates will receive a high quality resource file to support the qualification. This will include an induction pack and a coach handbook to support the core learning outcomes along with a candidate pack which contains all of the assessment tasks.
