ABOUT THE COURSE
Do you enjoy helping others to improve their health, wellbeing or sporting performance? Do you want to help get people active and motivated to exercise? Have you ever wondered how people acquire skills, and how you should teach them to develop these further?
If you answered yes to all these questions, then BTEC Sport is the right course for you. We offer a broad-based course that will give you the opportunity to explore a range of topics within sport, health and wellbeing, including: anatomy, coaching and leadership, fitness training, sports development and practical sport performance.
The emphasis throughout this course will be on developing your theoretical knowledge of sport and health, and practical skills in coaching, leading and developing the performance of others.
WHAT WE ADD
The skills you develop on the course will fully prepare you for study at university or for apprenticeship, and employment opportunities in sport. Whilst on the course you will also have the opportunity to plan, deliver and lead a range of sports activities and exercise sessions for young people and community groups, and undertake additional qualifications, including sports leaders, fitness instructor and coaching qualifications.
Access to our own new gym facilities, trips to universities, and interaction with guest speakers from industry will give you an excellent insight into the possible careers you could move into.
HOW CAN I STANDOUT WITH SPORT?
Many of our students go on to further study at university, undertaking a wide range of courses including: physical education, sports coaching, strength and conditioning, sports development and sports therapy.
