Sport (Development, Coaching and Fitness) BTEC Level 3 Diploma (QCF) at Kantor King Solomon High School

Course description

Year on year the sport and active leisure sector outperforms the rest of the UK economy; this has been a trend since the end of the economic recession of the late 1990s, and researchers predict will continue to be the case for years to come, long after the sports legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games. 

The annual contribution of the sport sector to the UK economy is over £8 billion. This sector has more than 36,000 employers creating work for more than 600,000 full-time and part-time employees, and 5 million plus volunteers. A signifi cant proportion of the total volunteer workforce is volunteering in sport, with most of them involved in sports coaching or activity leadership.

BTEC qualifi cations in Sport provide an introduction to the sector for learners looking to build a career in sport, within one of its occupational areas. These areas include careers in exercise and fi tness, coaching and leadership, sports development and the outdoors.
