Higher Physical Education

The Higher Physical Education course has two mandatory Units:

Physical Education: Performance Skills (Higher)

In this Unit, learners will develop a broad and comprehensive range of complex movement and performance skills through badminton, volleyball, football and rugby.  They will select, demonstrate, apply and adapt these skills, and will use them to make informed decisions.  They will also develop their knowledge and understanding of how these skills combine to produce effective outcomes.  Learners will develop consistency, precision, control and fluency of movement.  They will also learn how to respond to and meet the demands of performance in a safe and effective way.

Learners will be required to provide evidence of using, selecting, demonstrating and adapting a broad and comprehensive range of complex movement and performance skills in two of the following activities: badminton, volleyball, football and rugby.  Learners will be assessed on their ability to consistently respond to and meet the demands of the performance, and to make appropriate decisions for effective outcomes. 

Physical Education: Factors Impacting on Performance (Higher)

In this Unit, learners will develop their knowledge and understanding of mental, emotional, social and physical factors that impact on personal performance in physical activities.  Learners will consider how these factors can influence effectiveness in performance.  They will develop knowledge and understanding of a range of approaches for enhancing performance and will select and apply these to factors that impact on their personal performance.  They will create personal development plans, modify these and justify decisions relating to future personal development needs.

Learners will be required to provide evidence in the Factors Impacting on Performance Learner Workbook of their understanding of factors that impact on performance from: mental, emotional, social and physical.  They will evaluate and analyse their personal performance and implement approaches to address factors that impact performance on that performance.  Learners will evaluate their choice of methods and approaches used to develop performance.  They will justify decisions made and relate these to future development needs.
