What do teachers say about this resource? (8888)
The resource is brilliant and is going to help give me better ideas to plan my lessons effectively for my students. I have looked at resources for this unit, but there are no resources that provide so much detail. I like the specification reference table as it allows me to understand which worksheet I need for each learning aim from the specification. I also like the column which states the equipment I would need to complete the worksheets. The worksheets are good for challenging students... using worksheets that incorporate group and individual tasks, maths (performance profile wheel) and IT (website links). It enhances learning through individual and group activities, the use of different styles of worksheets that will incorporate different learning styles, for example, images for visual learners, guess who practical task for kineasthetic learners etc. The presentation of the worksheets is brilliant... it is clear and concise, and is easy to follow. I like how the worksheets are organised in a presentable manner, especially as some students may find too many words boring. I will definitely purchase this resource.
Some useful activities that would help to prepare the learners for the assignments in this unit. There are a range of activities with some good, innovative ideas on the whole. The resources are comprehensive and cover the requirements for the whole unit. I like the range of different activities and there is a good mix of group, pair and individual activities to keep things interesting. The activities range from filling in tables, researching, matching tasks and creating development plans to name a few. Once completed by the students, these activities would then all be useful for the students when coming to completing the assignments as the information collected would be easily transferred to the students work. The resources enhance learning as they can be used by assessors to scaffold learning in stages to prepare the learners for assessment. Content can be taught effectively using these resources and then the information can be used to create assignments. The education value is significant as it provides clear guidance for students who might otherwise find it challenging to put together a detailed assignment on their own. It would prove to be a valuable resource, especially for beginner teachers or teachers relatively new to BTEC. I would purchase this for my teaching.
The resource is good ... the tasks are engaging and will offer challenge to the pupils.
Really useful resource. Clear and easy to follow. This could be a pretty dull unit, if not broken up and planned appropriately, so this is really useful to help break down the different elements of the unit clearly.

The resource is fantastic and will help me teach Unit 7 effectively. I have looked at resources for Unit 7 but there are no resources that provide so much detail. I like the website links used in some activities... The worksheets are good for challenging students using worksheets that incorporate group and individual tasks, maths (performance profile wheel) and IT (website links). The presentation of the worksheets is brilliant as it clear and concise, and is easy to follow. This resource will be a life-saver for me!
The resource is well laid out and in a logical order. There are a number of interesting activities which are all relevant to the unit content... comprehensive and provides full coverage of the Unit. I like the resource as it is quite simple but effective and some of the activities would really capture the imagination of the students... The activities are varied and interesting. The resource enhances learning as it provides a range of varied practical activities to stimulate the students and keep them engaged... would provide a lot of value as it directs students towards completing various practically assessed criteria and it also enables them to collect evidence from these practicals to then put into their assignments to meet the criteria. Overall, I think this is a very good resource that could potentially help students to achieve the higher grades on their assignments for the unit.

This resource offers value for money. A comprehensive resource that can be used effectively to meet a wide range of differentiating educational needs... Offers a variety of teaching and learning methods, which keeps interest alive and is a fantastic way for teachers and learners to assess for learning. The wide variety of activity types will keep learners engaged and goes beyond mundane worksheets. I particularly like the way this resource contains activities that have a vocational context... practically based activities allow for role play, which enhances the learner experience of leadership roles in the sports industry, suitable for learning and development in this unit. This resource also facilitates differentiation... as tasks frequently vary by type... this will keep learners engaged, scaffold learning and meet different learning preferences.
The resource is brilliant and is going to help give me better ideas to plan my lessons effectively for my students. I like that not all of the tasks are individual worksheets... for example, some of the worksheets include peer work and group activities. The resource enhances learning through individual and group activities, the use of different styles of worksheets that will incorporate different learning styles, for example, images for visual learners, guess who practical task for kineasthetic learners etc. I like how the worksheets are organised in a clear, concise and presentable manner, especially as some students may find too many words boring. The specification learning aims are met throughout these worksheets and the specification reference table is brilliant so I can understand which worksheet I need to complete.
The resource is generally well set out with a range of different activities... simple to understand instructions for each activity. Once completed, the activities would be useful as a prompt for learners to help them transfer their learning into their assignments.
What do teachers say about this resource? (9598)
The resource is well versed and colourful [PDF+Word versions], making good use of relevant images... to support learners in their understanding of what fitness test is most valid for improving the most important fitness component for their sport. ICT was creatively incorporated really well and utilises social media mediums, which is something that is very prevalent in modern day society. The learning objectives of the tasks included are structured in such a way that the cognitive, affective and sensory domains are all covered; underpinned by Bloom’s taxonomy. Practical tasks are combined with, and underpinned by, activities that develop a theoretical framework for conducting a range of fitness tests for different components of fitness. I would highly recommend this resource and cannot wait to use it myself because it has a number of important uses.
A well-presented useful resource that would help students to transfer their learning in the classroom onto their assignments for the unit. The resource is ordered in a structured and logical manner and included some engaging and fun activities that would help to motivate students... I like the images and diagrams that are used and these are usually appropriate and engaging and add value to the resource. It will also help them to focus their attention to particular key concepts... and the resource makes links to real life with sporting examples where possible. These could be used for homework and independent learning or research tasks so they lend themselves to different types of learning.
The resource as a whole was well structured and easy to follow. You have tried to stay up to date with the students... For example, using phones as part of the task. I also enjoyed the use of images to engage the students. It was easy to understand and apply to a wide range of sports units. It allows students to explain and justify their chosen methods and activities. This resource will enhance learning, as it contains up to date information and is stimulating for the current students.
What do teachers say about this resource? (7060)
Love this resource. The majority of the more complex and challenging topics have been addressed in a stimulating and interactive style. Good range of interactive diagrams, drawings and tasks to support, aid and prepare learners for the exam.
I think it will support teaching well, acting as a good homework resource, or revision booklet. Clearly well organised and structured. The tasks allow for communication, leadership and literacy skills. The activities demand different skills and therefore pose challenge to pupils.
Resource works well to cover the content required for students to develop the knowledge to succeed in the course. Working students in a variety of pairs, groups and individuals ensures that students develop the ability to challenge each other as well as supporting themselves within the course.
Good range of different activities to embed knowledge and understanding of this unit. You can adapt them to suit your students’ style of learning and give the teacher many different types of activities.
What do teachers say about this resource? (8558)
It puts the focus on the student rather than teacher led. The activities overall are very easy to follow and so user-friendly for both teacher and student. The answers are included and are detailed which would assist the teacher. I would use it for class activities after tutor-led delivery.
The variety of activities throughout the pack are excellent, I think this is really key when planning for lessons. The practical elements of the pack are also easy to set up and run but really efficient at meeting the assignment brief. I believe it will enhance learning as it has such a varied amount of activities for students to do.
Lots of very good content... very helpful for all students...it would keep all learners on task. I liked the different activities and the visuals that were used.
