This unit has been designed to develop students who are prepared to function effectively in diverse educational settings with competencies that are instrumental in training school aged students, interpreting research results and accurately responding to questions relating to physical activity, training and performance. At the completion of this unit it is hoped that students are more confident and knowledgeable in this content area, understand the vital link between theory and practice and value the need for them to be research informed teachers.
