The difference between the NGB courses and 1st4Sport courses is that 1st4Sport courses are qualifications aligned to the RQF framework. As a result 1st4sport courses are standardised at a level across sports through core modules. The National Governing Body (NGB courses) have been developed by the NGB so content is determined by each relevant NGB and can vary in content covered across sports as this is governed by the National Governing Body. NGB courses are viewed as awards/courses.
