Assessment

Program delivery will combine both class-based tasks and practical components in a real gym environment at the school.  This involves the delivery of a range of fitness programs to clients within the school community (students, teachers, and staff).

A range of teaching/learning strategies will be used to deliver the competencies. These include:

  • Practical tasks
  • Hands-on activities involving participants/clients
  • Group work
  • Practical experience within the school sporting programs and fitness facility
  • Log Book of practical experience
    Evidence contributing towards competency will be collected throughout the course.  This process allows a student's competency to be assessed in a holistic approach that integrates a range of competencies.
    NOTE:  This program involves a mandatory 'outside subject' weekly component as follows:
  • TERM 5, 6 or 7:  60 minutes per week across a minimum of 5 consecutive weeks – delivering fitness programs and services to an adult client, undertaken at the school gym or an alternate fitness facility sourced by the school.
  • TERM 6:  A minimum of one session (60 minutes) – delivering a gentle exercise session to an older adult client (age 50+), undertaken at the school gym or an alternate fitness facility sourced by the school.
    All other practical experiences have been timetabled within class time. Students will keep a Log Book of these practical experiences (minimum 40 hours).
    Pathways
    The Certificate III in Fitness will predominantly be used by students seeking to enter the fitness industry and/or as an alternative entry into University.  For example:
  • Exercise Physiologist
  • Teacher – Physical Education
  • Sport Scientist

Students may also choose to continue their study by completing the Certificate IV in Fitness.
