Sport BTEC Level 2 Diploma at Brooklands College
This course builds on the Level 1 Diploma in Sport and the GCSE in PE, improving the student’s knowledge of fitness and sports performance. It is coursework based and students are assessed on the quality of assignments produced. The course is a combination of theoretical and practical units with two online externally assessed units.
Who is the course suitable for?
This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in sport and who wants to gain a qualification to go into employment within the Sport or Health & Fitness industries, Outdoor Education industry or onto a sport-related further education course. Students must be willing and able to participate in physical activity, as this is a requirement to achieve certain components of the course. The course is a combination of theory and practical units.
The 3 mandatory course units:
• Fitness for Sport and Exercise
• Practical Sports Performance
• Carrying out a Sports Related Project
• Mind and Sports Performance
• The Sports Performer in Action
• Training for Personal Fitness
• Profiling Sports Performance
• Work experience
• Practical Land Based Outdoor and Adventurous Activities

You need 5 GCSE passes at grade D or above (including one grade C in an appropriate subject e.g. Science or P.E).
All of the units are assessed individually through coursework and assignments, which are set and marked by both internal and external moderators.
There is an initial voluntary contribution to be paid at the start of the course for materials and equipment. You would also be expected to make a voluntary contribution if you wanted to take part in any opportunities that arose throughout the course such as trips, additional qualifications, (e.g. coaching badges). More details on costs will be provided during the application stages.
Students are allocated a certain amount of free printing, after which a small fee will be incurred.
On successful completion of the programme, including functional skills/GCSE, students will be considered for progression to the Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Sport. This is based upon them achieving a Merit at Level 2 and their overall performance throughout the year (attendance, attitude etc.). There are also opportunities to progress into employment in areas such as public and private leisure and health facilities, sports coaching, sports development, the uniformed services and administrative careers. Your personal tutor and careers advisors are available to help you make the right choice when it is time to plan the next step.
