Level 3 Physical Education - PED 301

Physical Education aids students to discover and develop their own physical abilities, acquire knowledge, skills and an understanding of movement.  This course is a combination of sports science and sports studies.  It is preferable that you have taken PE at L1 & L2 but this is not a prerequisite. The course is taught with class time being made up of half theory and half practical. The main focus of this course is to equip you with the necessary skills to maintain and develop your personal well-being, both now and in the future; as well as prepare you for future academic and vocational opportunities.

Great opportunity to obtain leadership skills as students are to lead year 10 camp with heaps of fun activities such as rafting, orienteering, bushcraft and much more!

A total of 19 credits on offer over the year. All internal assessments. 

This course is:     Endorsable
