Assessment Methods

  • Portfolio of Evidence

  • Why choose this qualification?

    The qualification has been developed following consultation with further education colleges and adult and community learning providers who requested new level 2 qualifications that were graded. It is intended primarily for learners post 16 who are interested in Sport and Active Leisure but have not studied Sport and Active Leisure at key stage 4 or who have not achieved higher grades in this subject.

    The qualification may be used within a 16-19 study programme and is intended to give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that will enable them to progress to further study in Sport and Active Leisure or related area at a higher level.

    The qualification is part of a suite of graded qualifications that Gateway Qualifications has developed to complement the Suite of Skills qualifications in Sport and Active Leisure. The level 2 units in the qualification have the same content and pass criteria as some of the units in the Suite of Skills qualifications in Sport and Active Leisure but also include merit and distinction criteria.

    The qualification includes an optional unit in Improving own Employability skills. This could be used with learners who are on a programme that encompasses a work placement.

    Learners also have the option of completing a substantial project in an area of Sport and Active Leisure. This will support the development of independent learning and research skills that are essential for further study.
