Course delivery details

The course is structured to have 5 lessons per unit, per week, with one additional support session (Course Tutorial). Each unit typically has three assignments, which are supported with ‘How To Do It Sheets’, guiding the students through the assignment, giving tips on information to include. The whole course is supported by an excellent intranet site, containing all of the information students need, as well as additional support sessions during study periods.

Throughout the course, tutorial sessions will form a compulsory part of the timetable. Students will meet with their course tutor weekly, discussing their current progress, gaining feedback on their assignments and receiving support and guidance in their career aspirations. Student progress is also tracked through course tutorial, so students are aware of what grades they have achieved, and what they need to attain to achieve their desired grade. This all forms a vital part of the student success on the course.

Students will have the opportunity to undertake additional courses of:

  • HSLA
  • Extended Project
  • First Aid
  • Child Protection in Sport

There will also be an opportunity to complete sport specific leaders awards with related National Governing Bodies. These will provide excellent additional qualifications for prospective employment and unit criteria will be integrated within them. The course may also involve field trips where certain units will be studied. At the end of year one, you will have the option to complete a one-week, sport industry-related work experience placement, aimed at your personal career development. This does not, however, form a compulsory part of the course.
