VisionED believes that every child is entitled to and should experience high quality physical education irrespective of any factor. High quality PE is not just the domain of the few but should be open, accessible and appropriately challenging for all.
This national qualification is an effective partnership between the school, the learner and VisionED to develop competence through training, experience, skills and a qualification. Headteachers are key in supporting their staff development and PE subject leaders can enhance their support and develop greater subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding of their staff. This course is based on over 10 years of delivery, development and experience.

The course remains the same qualification, but all the materials have been updated and added to, reflecting the new funding for PE, emphasis on impact, physical literacy, EYFS, health, new national agendas, assessment, well-being and new health and safety (2020) guidance.
