Course description

-BTEC Level 2 Diploma Sport Industry Skills (Child Sport)-B2DSIF

The qualification has been developed in consultation with employers in the sport and active leisure industry and the professional body in sport and has been mapped to professional standards for working in the school environment (out of curriculum). This means that learners will have achieved the entry requirement for employment as a sports coach for children. It will enable learners to develop the skills and behaviours that are required for this job role and give learners the best opportunity to be successful in applying for work.

All the content of the qualification is mandatory and relates directly to the skills, knowledge
and behaviours expected by employers in the sport and active leisure sector. The areas you
will cover include:

  • ways in which people participate in sport and physical activity
  • jobs in the sport and activity leisure industry
  • personal skills and professional behaviours for working in the active leisure industry
  • the school environment and National Curriculum
  • the children’s sport leader role within the organisation
  • planning and leading children’s sports activity sessions
  • sports industry legislation and guidance.

    You will also cover broader skills in literacy and numeracy, which will help you to progress. You will develop other transferable technical and practical skills in communication (working with colleagues, customers and clients), and self-management and problem-solving skills.

Training Course Content

All units in this qualification are mandatory, which provides a balance of breadth and depth,
ensuring that all learners develop the technical and practical skills required in the occupational area. Learners are then given the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills and attributes expected by employers. It is expected that learners will apply their learning to relevant employment and sector contexts during delivery, and that they will have opportunities to engage meaningfully with employers.

This is achieved through learners performing practical, work-related tasks that encourage the development of appropriate work-related behaviours and transferable skills. Transferable skills are those such as communication, teamwork, planning and completing tasks to a high standard, all of which are valued in the workplace.

Continuing Studies

The qualification gives you a sound basis to progress to a Level 3 qualification, when studied in a full study programme, such as the BTEC Level 3 National in Sport and Coach Development, the BTEC Level 3 National in Sport and Fitness.
