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

Course description

You will study a variety of additional units on top of the Diploma units which include Sports Nutrition, Sports Injuries, Sports Psychology and Organising Sports Events amongst others. You will complete three units each term. All work must meet each deadline and must be word processed. The BTEC National Extended 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 three 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. You will also be given the task to organise one of the four major sports events on the schools calendar, which include the Swimming Gala, Sports Day, X‐Country or the Stantonbury Challenge Cup.


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
