Unit 6 A1
Task 1
A good school is to help pass on the knowledge that is important for children to live in this society, as well as the society’s values and social practices. It also starts to prepare young children for the world of work. This all starts when the children reach the age of 3 (2 in poorer areas or low income) and they go to their nursery’s or pre-schools.
The reason is because all children’s experiences that they receive in their earliest years lay the foundations for the rest of their lives. Every chid deserves the best start to their lives as possible. It is also important to work out the early identification of the needs of a certain child. For example, if a child has signs and symptoms of autism, it can help their future education because of the schools knowing about it. It can also help a child to improve on their language and social skills, especially if they get the highest quality of education.
Every three and four year old child is entitled to free early years education in an Ofsted inspected setting which is found to be satisfying. Then funding is available for 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year. Free places are available in a number of settings including school nurseries, child-minders and private day nurseries.

BTEC Diploma: Outdoor Adventures Level 2
This course is a non-stop course that covers areas of both practical and adventurous activities on both land and water.
The course covers many themes and not just practical. These include anatomy, physiology and fitness for the outdoors, the outdoor environment, health and safety in the outdoors and improving personal skills and leadership in a range of outdoor activities. These include rock climbing, canoeing, navigation and hiking, and mountain biking.

You will also have the chance to take on expeditions and participate in residential trips, in the UK and maybe even abroad. This will allow you to take on other activities, like caving, windsurfing, sailing, coasteering, surfing, skiing and many more.

As you can see, there is a vast array of different activities that can be participated in, both inside and outside of the country. This will allow you to grow on skills of physical activities that you might not have been able to try out before, improving on areas of development.
If the course is successful and you enjoy it a lot, you can move up to the next level and participate in the Level 3 90-credit extended diploma. This means another 3 years on the course.
The GCSEs needed to enter the course are at grade D or above, including maths and English Language, or the equilivent to them. This means that it is very easy for Patrick to get on to the course.
Even though Patrick has the grades needed to take on this course, he may be too over qualified. He already has the grades needed, so he could move straight onto the Level 3 and skip a year. He might get tired or feel bored while participating in the course.
If you decide to just do the Level 2 course and then stop, you will miss out in coaching and training. If Patrick wants to have a career in physical education, he can’t stop at the end of the first year.
BTEC Outdoor Adventure 90-Credit/Extended Diploma Level 3
This course is very similar to the Level 2 diploma, but with more detail added into it.

As told, Patrick wants to have a career in physical education. With this course, that’s exactly what he will be able to do. It allows him to prepare to work in the outdoor industry for a vast array of relevant and exiting university courses. Many students before have gone on to study many courses, including teaching, geography, outdoor education, psychology, environmental studies, public services and sports…
