Course description

What will I learn?

This course is ideal for you if you are looking to kick start your future in sport and leisure industry and have a real desire to succeed. There’s never been a better time to get involved in the sport and leisure industry, especially for young people as the sector employs a large number of 16 to 24 year olds. The sport and leisure sector provides the first step on the career ladder for many young people.

The course examines sports performance and the sports industry: Fitness for sport - explore the components of physical and skill-related fitness and the principles of training; Practical sports performance - investigate the rules and regulations of a sport and apply the knowledge gained through observing officials in action; The mind and sports performance – explore how personality can influence choice of sport, and performance in sport; Training for personal fitness - design a personal fitness training programme, where you can select any appropriate methods of training to improve or maintain fitness levels safely; Anatomy and physiology - look at the musculoskeletal and cardio-respiratory systems and explore how they function normally and Carrying out a sports-related project - design original and effective plans that improve the quality of others’ involvement in healthy, active lifestyles through a sport project.

There will be opportunities to improve your English and maths and take part in GAP work placements. It’s also possible to gain coaching awards. After this course, you will gain the skills you need to find work or progress your studies to a higher level. You can progress to the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport.
