NESA students at TyneMet College were selected to undertake a 1st4Sport qualification that was designed by the National Charity StreetGames.

The 12 students were put through six gruelling days of learning involving both theory and practical activities in the build up to their assessments.

The course is a 1st4Sport qualification and consists of two Level 2 Awards; Principles and Preparations in Coaching Sport (QCF) and the other Multi-Skills Development in Sport (QCF).

This course teaches students how to deliver multi-skill activities that will enable the children they are coaching to develop their basic movement and generic sport skills so they have a good foundation to take up any sport they choose as they grow older.

The students all passed with flying colours and set a great example showcasing the high standard of learners that are studying at TyneMet.

StreetGames mentioned that they were really impressed with the high quality of the sessions delivered by the students in the assessment phase and also commented on the amount of theory that the students had absorbed over the six days and then put in to practice.

Now qualified, these 12 young leaders will go out to practice the skills they have learnt in the community.

Sarah Bennett, TyneMet College sport maker, who tutored the course said: “I was really impressed with all the students who undertook the course. They were a delight to teach and they all worked extremely hard to achieve a fantastic 100 per cent pass rate.”
