Do you have a high level of enthusiasm for sport in all its forms? Have you got a sound understanding of the theory aspects from GCSE PE/BTEC Sport? If so, this could be the course for you. This is a demanding course and a lot more time will be spent on theory aspects than the practical ones.
The PE subject could lead you towards numerous University courses, including: Sports Studies, Sports Science, PE teacher training, Leisure Studies, Sports Management, Stength and Conditioning, Exercise and Health, Nutrition, Sports Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy. In addition, A level PE is now well regarded as an A level subject when applying to courses in different fields of study. It will also help to gain employment in most sporting sectors such as: Sports Coaching, PE teacher training, Physiotherapy, Personal Training, Sport Psychologist, Lecturer, Sports Management and Sporting Events.
Unlike GCSE/BTEC Sport, this course is mainly theory based. However you will be assessed in one practical sport (70% theory; 30% practical) for which you do have the option of performing or coaching.
