Skills for Professions in Sport Level 1 Certificate at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College*
Our Level 1 Sport programme is designed to introduce learners to the world of sport and leisure. The vocational aspects of this programme allow learners to acquire a deeper understanding of their chosen specialism and allow progression on to one of our level 2 programmes.
Modules covered may include subjects such as anatomy and physiology, coaching children, taking part in sport, planning and leading sports events and units covering what it takes to work in the Sport and Leisure Industry.
Demonstration (at interview and at a College Taster day) of an enthusiasm for the industry in addition to an interest in sport and/or coaching and a keen motivation to learn. Applicants must have studied at GCSE level and achieved a minimum of grade 2 (grade E) in Maths and English.
Sessions will be a mixture of theory and practical lessons, and, wherever possible, underpinning theory will also be demonstrated in a practical context. There will be a variety of assessment methods used (such as written assessments, observations, presentations and discussions), and learners will gain a thorough understanding of the evidence they are expected to produce.
Ideally learners will progress onto a level 2 (GCSE equivalent programme) sport course. Those who do not, could progress into various career roles, such as leisure assistant, assistant sports coach, or could become involved in the administration of sport and leisure.
