National Certificate in Recreation and Sport - Core Skills (Facility Induction and Core Skills Programme) Level 2


This qualification will take up to 7 months to complete.


This qualification is designed for people wanting to explore employment pathways in the recreation and sport industry. It includes standards that cover the core skills required for employment in the recreation and sport industry and also allows the choice between standards relevant to a range of employment pathways in this industry.


This qualification pathway was developed after a lot of success with our larger clients who use the Core Skills qualification as an induction pathway. It became apparent that our smaller facilities who could not have customised material would benefit from a “generic” pathway.


PoolSafe facilities are now required to show evidence of staff inductions.
