Sport Foundation Level 1 Pathway at Reading College
This pathway is for those who want to explore a career in sport through a full-time college course and would benefit from having a high level of support with English, maths and personal development.
The benefits of doing the course:
- English and maths
- Employability skills
- Knowledge about a range of topics connected to sport
The pathway gives you an introduction to the sport industry. You will develop your knowledge in coaching, fitness, anatomy and nutrition and have the opportunity to use the newly refurbished gym to improve your fitness. You will take part in interactive and fun activities where assessment is continuous rather than by exam and you will complete a portfolio as evidence of your learning.
You do not need qualifications to join this pathway. However you will need a successful interview with a member of the teaching team to show your commitment to full time study and your interest in the subject. We will also expect a satisfactory school report. As part of your interview we will assess your levels of English and maths and advise you of the most appropriate level to study.
When you have achieved your Level 1 qualification you could progress onto Level 2 courses in a related subject such as Sport or other Level 1 or 2 courses. This course will also give you essential employability skills to look for employment in the sport industry.
