EXAMPLE LEVEL 3 PRACTICAL ASSESSMENT:

Here is an example of a Level 3 Summative Practical Assessment.

This was an actual Level 3 Personal Training assessment (but was delivered in front of a group of students for their own professional development).

Somethings to watch out for that you can bring in to your own practical delivery:

  • Communication – Loud, clear and informative.
  • Positioning
  • Explanation of exercise choice and set methods.
  • Encouragement feedback.

This has been done to show you the sort of performance that we will be looking for in your final practical assessment.
