About this course

This is a level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, which is the BTEC equivalent of three A Levels and gives learners the flexibility to progress on to university, employment or an apprenticeship.

The Sports and Exercise Sciences pathway works closely with local universities to increase opportunities for learners to gain university positions or training and employment within the sport sector.

Using the knowledge and expertise of our highly qualified sports professionals and their wide variety of specialist areas, learners will develop a broad understanding of sport and exercise sciences and can complete enrichment opportunities related to career aspirations such as sports massage, fitness instructing and sports leadership.

Units completed include Fitness Testing, Exercise, Health and Lifestyle, Principles of Anatomy and Physiology, Sports Psychology, Sports Nutrition, Sports Injuries and Current Issues in Sport, leading into employment or university study in a wide range of careers in sport and physical education.
