SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
An understanding of the relevant physiological knowledge underpinning specific sports and physical activity will inform the application of particular preparation strategies. This is of particular importance in relation to the design, prescription and implementation of appropriate exercise and training. Acquiring specific physiological knowledge and understanding will enhance the planning and responsible provision of appropriate exercise and training for a range of client groups. The development of laboratory assessment procedures contribute directly to a more effective understanding of the spectrum of physical activity. Consequently, practical familiarity with a range if investigative techniques and equipment is an essential part of the teaching strategy. A continual series of laboratory workshops provides for this.
