Sport BTEC Certificate at The Spires College

Course description

This four-unit BTEC Certificate offers a specialist qualification that focuses on particular aspects of employment within the Sport, Fitness and Leisure sector. As such the Certificate offers a qualification which can extend the study and provide vocational emphasis for learners also following an A Level course. The BTEC Certificate offers a focused qualification for students who wish to follow a shorter programme of study that is directly related to their work experience, or to an aspect of employment that they wish to move into in the future.The course involves a large amount of practical activity. Students should be regularly taking part in sport in and out of school to allow them to be successful. Students will be expected to take a full part in practical lessons, unless excused through illness or injury. There are many opportunities to work independently, completing background reading, research or recording findings. We expect candidates to word-process all written assignments so successful students will quickly take control of their time-management and independent learning to allow them to meet deadlines. The full course lasts for two years and consists of four units of study. Assignments are graded at Pass, Merit or Distinction level and all four units must be completed with a minimum of a pass in order to successfully finished the course.When studying for a full certificate:- Core: Principles of Anatomy and Physiology- Core: The Physiology of Fitness- Core: Assessing Risk in Sport- Specialist: Fitness testing for Sport and Excercise
