What will I study?

As part of the programme of study, you’ll have access to top facilities including the college’s new sports hall – built to Sport England standards.

Study units such as taking part in sport, how the body works, investigating rights and responsibilities at work and job opportunities in sport and active leisure.

Spend time both in and away from the classroom doing activity-based sessions.

Study programmes

It is an entry requirement for some courses to have gained GCSEs A*-C in English and maths (see entry requirements). If the entry requirements to a course do not require A*-C in these subjects, and you haven’t already gained GCSEs A*-C in English and maths before joining us, you will continue to study English and maths as part of your programme and take appropriate qualifications in these subjects with the aim of achieving A* to C grade. In addition, to help you gain essential skills for employment, every student aged under 19 and studying a full-time course at college will take part in our study programmes alongside their main subject qualification.
