Course description

Is this the right subject for me?

The BTEC National Diploma in Sport will appeal to you if:

    What will I learn?
    Sport and physical activity are a vital and expanding part of modern life. The impact of London 2012 has yet to be seen, although it is certain that the legacy of such an important event will drive further development in sport and physical activity. This course will equip you to develop and apply your skills knowledge and techniques to differing physical activity situations and contexts.

    The BTEC National Subsidiary Diploma is equivalent to 1 A Level and the BTEC National Diploma is equivalent to 2 A levels.
