Discover the learning experience and opportunities you can expect from this course.

BTEC Sport gives students an in depth knowledge of how the body works, adapts and improves through regular exercise. Candidates will study how this can be monitored and tested, leading to higher levels of performance. There will be research into the factors affecting participation, the effect of drugs and diet on performance, lifestyle choices and how they can have an impact on a person's health. There will also be assignments which require students to observe and analyse performances, feeding back to create performance profiles. The way the course is structured allows for staff to guide the students through the learning tasks, creating portfolios and projects which will mainly be assessed by the teaching staff. Its format will lead to teaching and learning being delivered in both practical and theory based sessions. All work will be monitored and suggestions for improvement will be given. The course will prepare all the candidates for possible career paths within the sport and leisure industry. This could include working within sports provision, teaching, leisure management, coaching as well as many other career paths which do not involve sport. The development of transferable skills including: decision making, psychological understanding of people, independent thinking, problem solving and analytical skills as well as thinking and acting under pressure are exciting benefits of choosing this course.
