During your programme of study, you will complete both English and mathematics, a work experience placement and the Sports Leaders’ (Community Sports Leaders’) Award in Sport and Active Leisure. You will also undertake a National Citizenship Course (run through NCS - National Citizenship Service) that links to your programme of study.

  • Participating in Sport
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Healthy Exercise and Nutrition
  • Skills and Tactical Awareness
  • Planning, Delivering and Evaluating Sports Activities.

Entry Requirements

Four GCSEs at a minimum of Grade D/3 preferably including English and Mathematics.
