Here are some of the questions answered that you have been asking regarding this course and COVID-19.
Where can I find the kids to participate?
You will have to recruit a group of kids in order to complete the practical element of the qualification.
You can use kids who are: Family members
Part of a local team eg. football, running etc
Local community group eg. scouts
Teen gym members from your local gym After school clubs
How will I be assessed on my Kids Fitness course?
In order to achieve your qualification, you will be expected to show that you have worked with REAL children between the ages of 5-16 in a safe and suitable environment:
Study your online materials over a time period to suit your current
commitments and complete our online mini-quizzes along the way to check
Plan an exercise programme for children to assess your planning and delivery
Meet with your Fit Training assessor online to discuss your planning elements
Record your kids (a group of between 6-10) performing a suitably planned
session and send it to your assessor who will review it and grade it to ensure
you’re ready to get out there to motivate children to get fit.
**Your video assessment can be submitted either via DVD, USB stick or via e-mail/
file-sharing e.g. dropbox
Do I need a DBS check?
YES. Before you start working with kids you would normally need an up to date DBS check.
It would be advantageous to start the ball rolling as soon as you can.
**if you are completing your practical assessment with family members you
will not need a DBS but will still need to obtain one prior to you starting your own
sessions once qualified.
