What will I do?

You will cover a broad variety of topics relating to the sporting industry, from anatomy and physiology, to sports psychology and sports business. You will conduct research projects, learn about officiating and the regulations of sport, and find out how to apply your skills to different career pathways. You will understand the industry first-hand through work experience and relevant trips – last year a group of our students headed out to Uganda to teach games and sports to young children. As part of this course you will take part in work placements to improve your industry knowledge and experience. Companies we work with include Champneys, Daytona Motorsport, Big Rock Climbing, The Gym, Sports Therapy UK, Why Weight, and many more.

What's next?

Depending on what steps you want to take next, you could move on to study a university-level qualification to improve your knowledge in your specialism, conduct efficient research projects and make useful contacts in the industry. You could also kick your career off straight away with the experience you’ve gained, by taking up a position as a coach or teaching assistant in a local school. You could even be scouted by a sports team to join their training programme to play at a professional level. Previous Level 3 students have progressed to move on to universities, including specific sports scholarships, both in the UK and USA.

Is it for me?

Whether you dream of coaching a Premier League team, want to help people feel better about themselves, or want to get children into your favourite sport, a qualification in sports could help you reach your goal. You must be an excellent verbal and written communicator and have excellent organisational skills.

You require 4 GCSEs at grade C/4 or above including Maths & English.
