Sport BTEC Level 2 at Christ The King College

Course description

The BTEC First in Sport has been designed to build upon learning from Key Stage 3, for those who may wish to explore a vocational route throughout Key Stage 4, and in post-16 education. The areas of study are:

Fitness for Sport and Exercise 
Practical Sport Performance
Two optional Specialist Units

Course content

The Edexcel Level 2 BTEC First Certificate in Sport consists of four units that provide for a combined total of 120 guided learning hours (GLH) for the completed qualification.


The assessment approach of the BTEC First Certificate in Sport allows for learners to receive feedback on their progress throughout the course as they provide evidence towards the grading criteria. Evidence for assessment may be generated through a range of diverse activities including workplace assessment, role play and oral presentation. Be under no illusion – this is not an easy option and students are required to submit at least 10 pieces of coursework per year. Majority of units (subjects) are assessed through assignment coursework. However, there is an exam within BTEC Sport, which equals to 25% of the whole qualification.
