BTEC (Year 10)

The Abersychan School Physical Education Department has had a very busy June and July 2017 with pupils from Year 10 taking part in B-Tec assessments which have taken place at Llandegfedd Reservoir under the instruction of Welsh Water adventurous activities instructors. The 28 pupils who are studying B-Tec Level 2 qualifications in two different courses which are the Extended Certificate in Teamwork and Personal Development in the Community and the other being the Extended Certificate in Skills and Activities for Sport and Active Leisure (Outdoor Education)

Both of these qualifications involve completing units of work where the pupils have to gain experience in at least five adventurous activities.

Each pupil has taken part in two full days of various water sports including paddle boarding, canoeing, Kayaking, raft building and introduced to sailing.

The sessions helped develop the pupil’s communication skills, teamwork and also improved their confidence while learning new skills and at the same time had a very enjoyable experience.

The B-Tec Outdoor Education group can look forward to completing a RYA Level 2 Youth Sailing course at Llandegfedd Reservoir in September 2017. 

Please see the below link for some of the pictures during the sessions.
