Course programme

Qualification: BTEC First Diploma EDEXCEL

Duration: 1 year
If you are interested in sport enough to make it a central part of your career then this one-year course is an excellent first step. You will study two core units, The Body in Sport and Health, Safety and Injuries and four selected units including topics such as fitness and analysis of practical performances. A tutorial programme and First Aid are embedded into the course. This qualification will enable you to progress onto more advanced courses such as BTEC National Sport or working in a Sports and Leisure centre.

Qualification explained
BTECs are practical, work-related courses. You learn by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands. As well as learning about the employment area you have chosen, you develop the skills you need to start a career. The BTEC National Diploma is equivalent to three A Levels which means when you have finished the course you can choose whether to get a job straight away or go into Higher Education first. A BTEC National Award is equivalent to one A Level so it can be combined with other subjects. A BTEC First Diploma introduces you to the employment area you have chosen and provides a good basis to go on to a more advanced work-related qualification. A BTEC First Diploma is equivalent to four GCSEs grades A* to C and is normally taken at college as a full-time course.
