Level 2 Diploma in Sport at Andover College

Course description

This Diploma is nationally recognised (equivalent to 4 GCSEs at A* – C). It covers a range of practical and theoretical aspects and provides an ideal opportunity to progress onto Level 3 Sport courses or directly into sport.
The course is flexible and allows students to take other GCSE subjects alongside it.

The College has unlimited access to some of Hampshire’s premier training facilities in addition to all the local sports clubs. These links are well established and provide first class facilities for the students. Our talented teaching staff, including Hampshire Cricket Club’s Academy psychologist and Olympic Lifting coach, bring with them a wealth of academic and industry experience.

Students should be prepared for all lessons; either practical or theory based, and apply themselves at all times. A passion for sport or fitness is a must and a desire to learn and develop is key to success in the qualification. We stretch and challenge our students to strive for the best they can achieve; therefore, students require high levels of self-motivation.In addition to a fantastic learning environment, we offer a multitude of experiences.

We run various academies including football (men’s and women’s), rugby and golf and they play competitive fixtures against other colleges. We offer many different extra-curricular activities such as 5 a-side football, badminton, gym club, kayaking, trampolining, community coaching projects and much, much more!
