WHAT IS AN ACTIVATOR IN INCLUSIVE MARTIAL ARTS?
The role of the Activator is to engage participants in martial arts. The Activator will help participants engage with others.
The Activator helps people enjoy further opportunities in martial arts, by signposting participants to more sessions with a qualified Level 2 coach.
The Activator can also assist a CIMSPA Level 2 or Level 3 qualified Inclusive Martial Arts Coach, Inclusive Martial Arts Instructor or Inclusive Martial Arts Activity Leader.
Prior to registration for the qualification, learners are required to:
be accurately identified
be at least 14 years of age
be able to evidence an interest in physical activity
The learner will not be eligible to run any physical activities without the presence of a Level 2 Activity Coach or Activity Leader.
WHAT WILL THE COURSE BE LIKE?
The 1st4Sport Level 1 Award for Inclusive Activators is in three Tiers. Each Tier is a 12-hour learner-led programme providing the structure for this first step into inclusive martial arts education.
Tier 1 checks and challenges the learner’s current understanding of martial arts. The Tier 2 course gives access to The Knowledge which provides additional learning.
Tier 3 is an OFQUAL regulated and accredited qualification.
Learners can expect to:
Understand the philosophy and principles of martial arts
Understand the role and responsibilities of an Activator
Understand how to activate people into martial arts
Understand more about health and wellbeing
Understand how to organise and facilitate inclusive martial art activities
Understand how to adapt martial arts so that everyone can participate
HOW MANY HOURS PER WEEK?
It's up to the learner. Participants are supported to plan and carry out their own daily wellbeing activities which can either fit around a busy schedule or provide structure and fun to your holidays. Participants will have a minimum of one session once per week with their Tutor.
