Sport - BTEC L1/2 at Cordeaux Academy

Course description

This Level 1 or 2 course is a one year option for those students who wish to gain formal qualifications or improve their Level 2 profile. Students who have completed a Level 2 Certificate or Extended Certificate may wish to extend that qualification into a full Diploma over the year, whilst improving their GCSE English, Maths and Science grades. Students may have the opportunity to play for academy teams, coach younger students and use the new gym facilities to gain experience in the world of personal fitness. A Level 1 option may be possible for Foundation Learning (FL) students who wish to work in the sport and leisure industry. The FL route will normally require students to undertake a weekly placement, therefore candidates must be willing and able to do this.


Entry requirements

4-5 GCSEs at Grades D-G. A Level 2 qualification in literacy is preferable, but not essential. If you do not possess a Grade C in GCSE English, Maths or Science will be expected to include these courses in their programme of study. Students must have an active interest in sport and leisure activities. Performance at a reasonable standard in two sports would be an advantage.

Future opportunities

This qualification provides general preparation for employment in a number of sporting sectors as well as a route into further education. It provides a natural progression to Level 3 courses such as the BTEC Nationals.
