1st4sport Qualifications launches in Scotland

1st4sport now SQA accredited and able to award qualifications in Scotland

We are thrilled to announce that we are now SQA accredited and have awarded our first qualification on the SCQF: the 1st4sport SVQ 2 in Activity Leadership at SCQF Level 5.

1st4sport’s Education Director, Tony Dallimore, said:
We are delighted about achieving SQA accreditation and are pleased to announce the development of our first qualification on the SCQF: the 1st4sport SVQ 2 in Activity Leadership at SCQF Level 5. We are currently in the process of exploring the development of a portfolio of qualifications that will meet Scottish learners’ needs. Our intention is to award qualifications in areas including spectator safety, leisure management, leisure operations and outdoor programmes. So we would encourage organisations interested to keep checking the website for details.

The 1st4sport SVQ 2 in Activity Leadership at SCQF Level 5 is an excellent qualification that enables organisations to provide learners with access to one of the few occupational qualifications currently available to those with an interest in multi-activity leadership in the workplace. It is ideal for those with experience in the area of activity leadership who wish to gain a nationally accredited qualification. However, it can also be delivered as:

  • a stand-alone qualification
  • part of a larger collection of qualifications within an Active Leisure and Learning Modern Apprenticeship at Level 2*.

What’s more, it has a range of optional units that allow learners aged 16 and over to develop in their chosen field of:

  • coaching
  • exercise and fitness
  • the outdoors
  • quality sports leadership.

So it’s a great qualification to help young learners develop their confidence in their chosen area of interest.
Organisations looking to become recognised to deliver the qualification will also benefit from 1st4sport’s usual time-saving and practical support, including comprehensive Learner Packs and helpful Tutor, Assessor and Verifier Guidance Packs.
