Whilst on this course, you’ll acquire the teaching and assessing skills required to plan and deliver lessons for both in-person students and those using digital learning materials. You will also learn how to assess official examinations and coursework to meet the highest industry standards.

  • Course Length: Whilst you can work independently, students typically complete the course in 8 weeks.
  • Entry Requirements: There are no prerequisites for our fitness assessor qualification. However, in order to teach a course you must hold the relevant associated qualification. All students must also be aged 16+.
  • Accreditations: This course is regulated by Ofqual and awarded by Focus Awards.

OriGym’s Level 3 Teaching and Assessing Qualification is split into two separate courses: one in teaching and the other in assessing.

When combined you’ll be equipped to deliver learning materials, whilst also knowing how to evaluate different kinds of formal assessments.

Understanding Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships in Education

You’ll learn about the role course instructors play throughout the qualification and the relationship they share with students. This includes learning about the responsibilities of a teacher in terms of the welfare of their class, in order to create a supportive learning environment.

Using Inclusive Teaching Approaches

Our Fitness Teaching and Assessing course will walk you through strategies that are inclusive for all students, including diverse demographics with different needs. This is essential for ensuring that all your students feel safe, welcomed and supported during their course.

Facilitating Group Learning

Covering the theories of learning, teaching and assessment processes, in this module you’ll be taught how to run inductions and icebreakers, as well as how to set ground rules for group sessions to develop an effective learning environment.

Principles and Practices of Assessment

We’ll teach about the different types of assessment methods in fitness courses, how to plan assessment days, legal requirements and how to manage quality assurance during the assessment process. You’ll also have the opportunity to shadow an assessment day for real OriGym students.

In order to complete the Level 3 Teaching and Assessing qualification, you will need to complete both theoretical and practical assignments relating to both of these separate courses:

Award in Education & Training (Teaching Qualification)

  • Online Coursework – Pass Required
  • Practical micro-teach – Pass Required

Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement (Assessors Qualification)

  • Online Coursework – Pass Required
  • Practical examination of assessing personal training students – Pass Required

The practical assessments will take place at one of OriGym’s training centres, located across the UK. You can even choose a date and site that suits you best!

OriGym’s Fitness Tutor Qualifications are taught via blended learning, combining online study with in-person practical workshops and assessments.

You can complete the theory side of the course at your own pace, working from the comfort of your own home on our custom-built E-learning platform.

As well as access to our award-nominated online learning platform, you’ll also receive the full support of our expert tutoring team. Should you require any assistance with your course, you can reach out via email, phone or chatbox.

In terms of face-to-face learning, this course also involves expert-led practical workshops where you can get hands-on experience and put your learning into practice. You will be responsible for booking a space in these sessions, and will be able to select a date that suits your commitments – with weekend options available!

Post-Course Career Support

Upon completing the Level 3 teaching and assessing qualification you will receive access to OriGym’s post-course support team. Our career experts will be on hand to increase your employability through services such as:

  • Free CV analysis and distribution
  • Mock job interviews
  • Business & marketing materials
  • Access to our jobs board

Progression Opportunities

After becoming a qualified teacher and assessor you will be able to work in a range of vocational education institutions, such as reputable course providers like OriGym!

In terms of how you can progress and develop your career, keep in mind you’re only able to teach and assess on courses you’ve personally completed. For example, if you’re a qualified Personal Training you’ll be able to teach the Personal Training Diploma.

Therefore if you’re looking to progress your career you will need to qualify as a specialist Personal Trainer with a Level 4 qualification. Alternatively, you can pursue an entirely new discipline, through the likes of a Sports Massage Therapy course or Yoga Teacher Training.

Level 3 Fitness Teaching & Assessing Course Testimonials

    Sianna Lunn

    OriGym Level 4 Student

    “I chose a package of 4 courses to advance my knowledge within a career in the back pain industry. The packages were flexible and it was easy to build the courses to suit my own requirements. I found the response time with online chats to be almost instant and always very helpful. I love having a dashboard so I can quickly see my progress and ‘tick off’ each module section. Practical assessments are organised and professional with friendly staff. It’s been a really easy way to return to learning and the flexibility of the course suits a busy lifestyle and full time work”.

    “After researching online and looking at various courses, I was happy to choose a recognised Nutrition qualification which is what OriGym offers. It was important for me to see a lot of positive reviews, as well as the course content looked thorough and in depth. I chose this course to add another dimension and skillset to my business. If I can utilise the framework provided by OriGym, I will be able to develop a successful business and educate anyone from the general public to professional athletes.”

    “Although this is starting something new, it’s also building on something that I already have.I reached out to friends who have done similar courses and OriGym was mentioned as the course to go to. After I enquired, Michelle called the next day and was really organic and genuine in our conversations, whereas other providers sent a generic email where I still had to do more research myself. As an olympian a mission is to always pass on experience and knowledge. I’d look to eventually have my own company to really pass on my passion and maybe even help create a new olympian in the future!”
