You should bring a bottle of water to every session. You should wear clothing that you
feel comfortable in with plenty of room for movement. You should not wear any jewellery
when exercising and long hair should be tied back. Please keep your tutor informed about
any changes to your health (e.g. injuries, illnesses).
If you feel at all unwell during the class then please stop and inform your tutor.
Approximately 15mins of the first session will be used to assess your starting point
through an Individual Learning Plan, which will be updated during and at the end of the
course, and to complete a health and fitness status form.
We aim to make the learning experience as individual relevant to you as possible and
these forms are one method that helps us to do this.
• Some of your guided learning hours will be used to set the group and individual
learning targets for the course. You will then have time to revisit these targets with your
tutor to assess your progress.
Please note: Learners will not be allowed access to classrooms without a member of staff
being present.
