Course description

The BTEC Certificate in Sport and Exercise Sciences is designed to give learners a basic grounding in understanding and knowledge of the sector. It is a practical work-related course. All assessment opportunities are based on realistic workplace expectations. Sport and exercise scientists continue to be a growing presence in the world of sport, and as we look to the future, all the signs suggest that their influence in sport will increase. From the elite performers’ reliance on a large support team, to the casual gym user’s use of ergogenic aids, sport and exercise sciences’ core elements of anatomy, physiology, psychology and biomechanics are seen in almost every aspect of, and activity within, the sport and active leisure sector.
