Leisure Studies at St Birinus School

Course description

The course begins with an investigation into the nature, structure, scale and importance of the fastest growing industry in the UK and Europe. ‘A People Business’ develops an understanding of the importance of the customer to the leisure industry. Students investigate a leisure business in order to develop an understanding of working practices, procedures and business systems.

In A2, ‘Leisure in Action’ provides an opportunity to develop participation, leadership and organisational skills as a team of students manage an event or project. In the final unit students get an opportunity to develop an understanding of chosen current issues, for example: the benefits of hosting the Olympics in relation to the costs or the impact of rising levels of obesity.
