NPA Sport and Fitness: Team Sport - Football (SCQF Level 5)

The National Progression Award Sport and Fitness: Team Sport will allow students to improve skills and knowledge relating to sports participation, organisation, officiating and coaching. There are three units to the course:

Participation and performance – where students will improve their skills in football (minimum of 20 hours).

Sports officiating and organising – where students will gain knowledge of how to referee in football as well as planning and officiating a football tournament.

Sports Coaching Development – where students will gain an understanding of effective coaching, as well as planning, coaching and evaluating their own sessions (minimum four sessions).


The course award is at SCQF Level 5, so is equivalent to a National 5. All three units must be completed to achieve the overall award.
