Course Information for Students

The new apprenticeship standards have been developed by employer groups for specific occupations. They contain on-programme training and an end-point assessment. The end-point assessment must be delivered by an independent organisation recognised on the Register of Apprentice Assessment Organisations. Employers of apprentices will select an organisation from the Register to conduct independent end-point assessment of their apprentices.

For candidates to undertake this apprenticeship, they will need to have already achieved a Level 2 Gym Instruction or equivalent qualification. Preferably candidates will already have an employer ready to start their apprenticeship.

Candidates must have achieved a Level 2 Gym Instruction qualification or the equivalent.

Preferably candidates should have already achieved grade 4 or above in English and Maths GCSE or should have achieved a Level 2 equivalent qualification.

The Fitness Training content includes:

  • Applied Anatomy and Physiology
  • Nutrition
  • Lifestyle, Health and Wellbeing
  • Encouraging Positive Health and Fitness Behaviours
  • Programme Design
  • Business Acumen and Professionalism

This course will be delivered in the workplace and on-site.

There are no additional costs. You may be required to attend classes away from the work environment in order to fulfil the knowledge required to complete the apprenticeship. This may result in travel costs.

When you are adjudged to be ready for end-point assessment, you will be entered for your final assessments. As you progress through the course, you will need to be revising information, implementing strategies, designing and recording activities that will be collated in a portfolio of evidence. This evidence will be relied upon in order for you to meet the assessment standards at the end of your apprenticeship. It will consist of:

  • Practical observation with questions and answers
  • Presentation with questions and answers.
  • Interview
