Are you considering a career in the world of sport? Can you see yourself working in the industry in the future, perhaps coaching others? Then our BTEC Level 2 Sport course could be for you. This course can also provide access to Level 3 study.

This course will see you studying topics that help develop the knowledge, understanding and practical skills you will need to succeed in the sporting industry.

Standard requirements for Level 2 Extended Certificate.

Some of the topics you will study include:


- Practical sports performance
- The mind and sports performance
- Performance in action
- Training for personal fitness and leading sports activity
- Injury and the sports performer

Please note that this is a year long, full time study programme that effectively offers you an opportunity to progress to a Level 3 study programme, or enter the workplace at a junior level.

Through your experience of practical activities and theory you will develop your self-confidence, written and verbal communication skills.  Group work, role plays and presentations will offer you the chance to develop as a student and prepare you for your next step. Your projects and assignments are based on real life situations, giving you the ability to see how the theory you are learning relates to real life.

You’ll enjoy a range of trips and visits. Our students have enjoyed placements at Opta Sports, visits to the English Institute of Sport, Rokt activity centre, and various outdoor challenge centres.

Our highly qualified and dedicated staff will help you get ready for your next step – for most students this is continuing their studies at Level 3.

Assessment is via presentations, group work and assignments and externally assessed exams.

Our Level 2 BTEC courses allow our students to progress onto Level 3 BTEC (A Level equivalent) courses, as well as offering students a route into a junior apprenticeship or entry level positions within the Sports sector.
