Course content

BTEC Nationals use a combination of assessment styles to give students confidence that they can apply their knowledge to succeed in the workplace, and have the stu dy skills to continue learning on higher education courses and throughout their career. This range of vocational assessments – both practical and written/task based – means students can showcase their learning and achievements to best effect when they take their next step, supporting applications to higher education courses or to potential employers. Students will gain vocational experience whilst studying for this qualification. The aim is that they will also gain wider qualifications alongside this cou rse, e.g. coaching certificates. This qualification allows students to work methodically over the two years on a modular basis, completing and being assessed in one unit before moving onto the next.

Entry requirements

Students should have studied GCSE PE and gained at least a grade 5 and have achieved at least a grade 4 in English Language.
