Study Programmes

 

The Health and Fitness related qualification that we offer is equivalent to a BTEC qualification and allows learners to gain 6-18 credits, within a minimum of 60-170 Guided Learning Hours (GLH) of study. It is suitable for age 14+. The full qualification is achieved by studying compulsory units in conjunction with optional units.

 

The units are internally assessed by VLC staff.  They are vocationally based and, as such, they offer the opportunity for learners to achieve a balance of practical skill and theoretical knowledge. Evidence of learning and achievement against all of the assessment criteria specified within each unit must be provided, and, as a result, the theory behind the practical work is required to be written up.

 

Learners following the Health and Fitness qualification will have the opportunity to acquire skills and knowledge in:-

⦁ Boxing,

⦁ Olympic Weight Lifting,

⦁ Body Conditioning

⦁ Weight and Circuit Training.

 

We can also offer the units as standalone awards to give a wider range of learners the opportunity to gain credits.

 

To further enhance the progression of our learners we also offer them the opportunity to study and gain qualifications in Functional Skills Maths and Functional Skills English. The total recommended GLH for the Functional Skills qualifications are 45 hours. It is intended that learners will take assessments for the qualifications ‘on demand’ when they are deemed ready.

 

Sports and Leisure: Provides learners with the skills and knowledge to either progress onto further education, or to seek employment within the sports and leisure industry in roles such as Fitness Instructors, Fitness Centre Managers or Sports Nutritionists.

 

Exercise and Fitness: Learners will research exercise and fitness facilities. They will take part in a range of activities such as weight training, boxing, circuit training, in order to improve performance. They will also be expected to demonstrate work-related skills such as time management and appropriate dress code.

 

Planning a Fitness Programme: Learners will study the components of fitness and methods of training. They will then be expected to use this information to plan and carry out a programme of exercise.

 

Health Living: Learners examine the effects of physical activity, alcohol consumption, smoking, nutrition and stress on health, enabling them to assess lifestyle and to consider ways to improve it, and be able to cope better with the daily demands of life.

 

Functional Skills Maths and English: Learners focus on acquiring skills, knowledge and understanding that will enable them to progress and succeed in learning, in employment and in life.

 

 

 

Personal Development

 

All of the courses on offer are underpinned by work in personal development. Personal development sessions explore living independently, undertaking daily tasks, confidence building, career progression, family life, forming healthy relationships, drugs and alcohol advocacy, smoking cessation, and managing money. VLC staff are committed to helping young people to explore their options, get the best out of their programme of study, continue to develop their skills to higher levels and to ultimately gain employment
