If you have a passion or even an interest for sport, whether it's Hockey, Football or even Ping-Pong (technically it's a sport), and you want to help others to get active and involved in sport, this course will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to progress.
What can I do after this course?
On successful completion of the course you could apply to progress onto one of the Level 3 courses available at the College, with a view of moving into higher education and work afterwards. You could apply for an entry level role in the industry, such as a Sports Coach, Gym/Leisure Work, Sports Therapist, Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer and much more.
Why choose this course?
To pursue a career in Sport and Fitness, you must have a combination of passion, determination and motivation. These three attributes are so important, as you must try your very best to transmit these skills on to other people, predominately your clients. This course will give you the skills and knowledge you need to excel in a number of different areas within the Sport and Fitness sector, whether it's Nutrition, Sport Psychology or Personal Training.
You will need at least 5 GCSE's graded D and above including English, or successful completion of a relevant Level 1 course, as well as an excellent reference.
How much will I have to study each week?
You should be prepared to study for around 25 hours per week. Approximately 16 hours will be taught sessions at college, including gym-based sessions. The rest will be homework and assessments.
You can expect to be in college for 4 days per week and classes will normally run between 9am and 5pm. Your work experience placement and additional study will require you to be organised and prioritise your workload.
Do I need to purchase anything?
You are required to wear a College polo shirt with black or navy blue jogging bottoms and trainers. Information on where to buy college polo shirts will be in your induction pack.
You will also be required to make small contributions to trips and visits.
How will I be assessed?
Don't worry, you won't have to run 5 miles in 10 minutes to pass this course as the assessments have been tailored to you, to give you the opportunity to develop the skills and experience you will need to progress. While assessment is predominantly through completion of unit workbooks, there will also be a number of observations and reports to document your participatin in practical elements of the course.
