Sport BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate (QCF) FT at Central Bedfordshire College

Course description

All sports students can chose to study their course either with or without the Luton Town Football Development pathway. The options will be discussed at interview stage.

Course content

The rationale for all qualifications in the BTEC First suite in Sport is to:

  • inspire and enthuse learners to consider a career in the sports and active leisure sector, rather than just to participate in sport as recreation
  • give learners the opportunity to gain a broad understanding and knowledge of, and develop skills in, the sport sector, e.g. the health and fitness industry or sports leadership
  • support progression to a more specialised level 3 vocational or academic Sport or Physical Education course or an apprenticeship
  • give learners the potential opportunity, in due course, to enter employment within a wide range of junior job roles across the sport and active leisure sector.

Junior job roles include: Recreation Assistant, Sports Leader or Assistant Sports Coach.

Entry requirements

A Level 1 qualification in a related subject. A good standard of literacy and numeracy supported by general education equivalent to four GCSEs at grades D including Maths and English.

A keen interest in Sport is essential as there is a focus on practical activity.
