What is the difference between a Tutor and a Delegate?

A trained tutor can deliver both qualifications within a PLC to delegates.

A delegate is an individual that takes the qualification(s).

Who can become a Tutor/Assessor?

A Tutor must have:

  • QTS accreditation
  • Experience of delivering and leading high quality PE within primary schools (for example; employed as a primary school PE teacher, PE Advisor, PE lecturer)
  • Experience of leading CPD

Who can take these qualifications?

** Coaches are still required to have a minimum of a Level 2 qualification in any of the sports/activities that they assist in raising the standards of PE teaching.
