Introduction to Sports, Fitness & Leadership is designed around practical skills and tasks that place an emphasis on learners demonstrating what they can do rather than what they know in theory.

The qualifications give learners the opportunity to acquire and develop generic, transferable and sector-specific skills in order to complete tasks and demonstrate a level of achievement that enables them to progress to further learning.
