The Extended National Diploma course combines academic units and practical experiences. Students will be guided and supported by experienced staff and a range of activities and sports related qualifications will enhance the course.
The BTEC qualifications in Sport have been developed to meet employment opportunities in the sport and active leisure sector and to give full-time learners the opportunity to enter employment in this sector or to progress to higher education. In particular the course prepares students for employment or further education in sports coaching, physical education, fitness instruction, sports development leisure management, and sport and exercise science. Progression onto higher education in sports related degrees is an extremely common pathway for sports students.
Students completing this course will initially be registered for the 90 Credit Diploma. Following successful completion of year 1, students will continue to complete the full Extended Diploma qualification.
