2. Demonstrate knowledge of a client-centred approach to sport and exercise science support work.
3. Demonstrate knowledge of professional accreditation frameworks, ethics, and codes of practice when working with clients.
4. Produce an applied analysis of a self-chosen setting in the form of a client-centred proposal for consultancy.

This module continues the approach taken in the Level One and Two modules in Applied and Thematic Studies. The primary purpose is to allow the integration and application of students' developing knowledge in the sub-disciplines of sport and exercise science. A feature of the ATS modules is to allow students to develop a theme in which they have a genuine personal interest and this culminates in this Level Three module with the final submission of an applied report. Applied and thematic
studies also provides an opportunity for the structured development of a number of key generic skills and for career planning and enhancement.
