I chose to take Level 3 Physical Education as it has given me an opportunity to gain a better understanding of my life with sport in the future. By taking PE it has allowed me to build on skills such as teamwork and communication through having to adapt to certain situations with different people. Level 3 PE also provides new skills such as critical thinking and modifying behaviours to relate more to others.
