Section 4.1: Briefing for Centres

Sports Leaders UK regularly sends Centres a Briefing for Centres updates. The aim of the Briefing for Centres is to keep Centres informed of any changes to policies, procedures or our qualifications and awards.

It is the responsibility of the Centre Course Manager (CCM) at each Centre to disseminate the information in the Briefing for Centres to all the staff involved in the delivery, assessment and internal verification of the course. The Sports Leaders UK Quality Assurance Officer will require evidence that this dissemination is taking place as part of the quality assurance visit.

Section 4.5: Qualification evidence and assessment

Each Sports Leaders UK qualification has a specification that details what the qualification's objective is and what needs to be assessed to achieve that qualification. This is done through a combination of:

  • Units
  • Learning Outcomes
  • Assessment Criteria

Every learner needs to successfully achieve all assessment criteria within a given qualification before they can be certificated for that qualification.

Section 4.5.1: Bridging between two Sports Leaders UK qualification

A learner can have exemptions for some units of qualifications if they have previously completed a qualification that has the same unit. In this situation the learner does not need to repeat the units they have successfully completed on a previous qualification.

Section 4.5.2: Using achievement and evidence from other qualifications

Evidence of learning and assessment from other qualifications with similar content can be used towards the achievement of any Sports Leaders UK qualification. If evidence is being used, the Centre must produce a document which highlights where other evidence is being used to meet assessment criteria of a given Sports Leaders UK qualification.
