More course information

BTEC Diploma in Sport offers an exciting opportunity for students who have a passion for sport and want to understand how to improve performance through theory and practical work. The course is broken down into 9 contrasting units and each student will be expected to complete a number of specific assignments in order to demonstrate a clear understanding of the course content and assessment criteria. Students are able to gain either a Pass, Merit or Distinction in each assignment and this will then be collated to provide a subsequent final mark. There are 3 externally assessed units which take the form of written examinations, in two of which you are allowed to take in prepared notes, and 6 internally assessed units. Specific subject knowledge is valuable in its own right, but the BTEC also has strong transferable links with Biology and Psychology. During the course students will develop their time management skills, the ability to work independently and within groups, further develop confidence and presentation skills, teach lessons to year 7 and 8 students, and hone their essay writing and practical skills. All of the above will lead to students developing their confidence for a career in the sports profession or further study at university
