BTEC Sport at St Aldhelm's Academy

Course description

This course provides an insight into both the practical and theoretical areas of sport. Over the duration of the course young people will follow a variety of units that are directly related to the sport and leisure industry. Young people will gain substantial knowledge of the body systems (cardiovascular and muscular system) and the effects of exercise upon them. They will learn how to design and implement an individual training programme and analyse how a person’s psychological state affects their performance.
They will be assessed practically in a number of sports and will have the opportunity to run their own sports events. Throughout the course young people will also be developing their coaching and leadership skills (Sport Leaders Award) and will have the chance to work with some of the local feeder schools in a coaching capacity.
