Exercise Referral at William De Ferrers School

Course description

The course can be taken alongside a 3 or 4 AS Level course, where students have 1, 2 or 3 lessons which will be a mixture of predominantly practical and some theory work. Initially, theory lessons will focus upon the science of Exercise Referral topics before students are introduced to Exercise Referral trainers and clients. Here, students will be expected to assist clients to complete exercise programmes within the schools fitness room designed for them by one of the trainers.

Students will be expected to complete individual and group work in all of the units. Students will be expected to learn and recall basic facts, to interpret and evaluate inofrmation, to observe and analyse practical performances and to apply theory to practice and vice versa.

We also encourage pupils to show a commitment to the PE department, either by helping out in KS3 lessons, extra curricular clubs or during inter-house competetions, again to further develop their leadership experience.

Entry requirements

All applicants with genuine sporting or medical/care interest will be considered. It would be advantageous to have studied GCSE PE. Studying Biology and/or PE or BTEC Level 3 would be advantageous, but not essential. The course provides a great opportunity for students looking to go into a health profession. The unique practical experience adds significant value for applicants to higher education.
