In order to give students who are interested and motivated in sports, we offer the option of a BTEC Level 2 Certificate in Sport (equivalent to one GCSE subject) and a BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Sport (equivalent to one AS level subject).
BTEC is a two-year commitment that enables students to explore coaching techniques, develop analysis and observation of sports performance, and investigate lifestyles of athletes. It includes both practical and theory lessons.
The core topics are:
- Principles of anatomy and physiology
- Fitness testing for sport and exercise
- The physiology of fitness
- Assessing risk in sport
- Practical team and individual sports
Students are assessed through a mixture of both practical and theory based assignments.
