Course Overview

This course is equivalent to four GCSE’s at Grade A-C level and aims to develop skills and knowledge for further Level 3 courses.  You will study 8 modules throughout the year, typically 4 modules per semester and include a combination of theory and practical elements.  

Typically, you will be in class studying Sports modules for a minimum of 15 hours.  One day a week is not timetabled to provide the opportunity for directed study, personal fitness or perhaps pursue part-time work in the Sports and Fitness Industry.  On successful completion of this course, students are well positioned to be considered to progress to a Level 3 Sports course or to further develop themselves by gaining employment in the Sports industry.

Modules may include:

  • Practical Sport
  • Anatomy and Physiology for Sport
  • Fitness Testing and Training
  • Nutrition for Sports Performance
  • Development of Personal Fitness
  • Effects of Exercise on the Human Body
  • Injury in Sport
  • Planning and Leading Sports Activities


A further 8 hours may be allocated to Essential Skills and Employability.  You will work towards a Personal Development qualification and will be involved in a range of activities designed to improve employability.  You will be required to complete Essential Skills in Literacy and Numeracy if you do not have a GCSE Grade C or above in English or Maths.  You will also have the opportunity to complete a qualification in ICT.

Entry Requirements

A minimum of 2D’s at GCSE level and a keen interest in sport, both as a player and/or a volunteer at a local sports club.

In circumstances where there are more applications for the course than there are places, the college reserves the right to ask for higher grades.

An interview will be required for admission to the course.

Where will it take me?
 This course is the ideal starting point for studying sport and can lead to BTEC Level 3 90 Credit Diploma/ Extended Diploma in Sport, other Level 3 courses or into employment in the industry.
How will it make me more employable?

As well as gaining a recognised qualification, you will develop study skills, employability skills, improve numeracy, improve IT skills and communication skills.

Strong links with local employers in the Sports industry enable the students to gain valuable volunteering and part-time experience coaching on their various sports programmes.

How will I be assessed and given feedback?

Assessment is continuous throughout the course using a combination of the following; written assignments, presentations, practical assessments and Project Based Learning activities.  Feedback is provided both verbally and in written format to each student on assignment return.  Student grades are tracked and progress discussed in tutorial.


Additional Costs

An upfront payment on registration to the course to cover sports kit and visit, estimated at £100.  In some cases the visit will form the basis of assessment and therefore is mandatory.


Course is accredited by Oxford Cambridge and RSA (OCR)
