Sport: Development, coaching and fitness (BTEC Diploma) at Stantonbury Campus

Course description

You will study a variety of units including the Physiology of Fitness, Sports Development, Sports Coaching and Leadership in Sport amongst others.. A work‐based experience in sport is also a component of the course. You will complete two units each term and all work must be word processed. The BTEC National Diploma is a practical, work‐related course. You learn by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands. As well as learning about the employment area you have chosen, you develop the skills you need to start a career. It is equivalent to two A levels which means when you have finished the course you can choose whether to go in to employment or further education. Students are continually assessed through criteria‐based assignments. All units are assessed and graded, and an overall grade for the qualification is awarded (at a pass, merit or distinction level). This grade can be converted to UCAS points if you wish to continue on to higher education. The course is entirely coursework based and includes presentation work. The course will provide opportunities for students to be aware of and to develop personal qualities of leadership, responsibility, commitment and teamwork in a range of practical and academic situations. Students will also have the option of completing the nationally recognised Level Two Sports Leaders award, as well as completing a work‐based experience in sport.


Grade C or above in GCSE PE or Pass level or above in BTEC Sport. A grade C or above in GCSE English and Science is preferble
