When Is My Assessment?
It is your responsibility to arrange the sign-off with a British Gymnastics recognised assessor.
Learners are to select one skill from each of the groups below and create a plan which develops all selected skills (15-20 minutes per skill). The plan must give details of the prerequisites of the skill, carefully selected progressions, and the specific physical training and preparation which would be needed by the gymnasts to perform the skill. The appropriate use of support and apparatus during the learning phases should also be indicated.
On the assessment day the learner must bring a minimum of one gymnast to the assessment, and their planning for all pre-selected skills. The learner and assessor will have a Professional Discussion prior to the assessment to establish which three skills from the plans will be delivered in the assessment. The learner must ensure the gymnast(s) are physically prepared to demonstrate the skills selected and planned for, and a copy of the session plans must be handed to the assessor at the start of the assessment.
In the assessment the learner must:
- Carry out a specific warm up with all gymnasts (10 minutes maximum)
- Coach the three skills agreed through the Professional Discussion, in accordance to the pre-prepared session plans (45-50 minutes maximum)
- Carry out an appropriate cool down for all the gymnasts (5 minutes maximum)
- Dismiss the gymnasts in an appropriate manner
The assessment debrief and outcome will be conducted after the practical assessment.
