Sport (including Outdoor and Adventurous Activities)
You will learn about many aspects of sport, particularly thinking about the human body and how it enables us to perform sport and outdoor activities. Time will be spent discovering how contemporary issues affect sport and outdoor activities on a daily basis. You will also develop practical leadership skills. There are further units to study that can be selected based on the student’s strengths and interests such as outdoor and adventurous activities, assessing risk or event planning.
How is the course structured and graded?
This qualification is available in a six unit Introductory Diploma form (equivalent to a full A-Level). We will start by initially working towards the first four mandatory Sport based units before choosing three relevant optional units based on the students interests. You can
achieve the course at either a Pass, Merit, Distinction or Distinction* grade. These are equivalent to an E, C, A or A* grade of a full A-Level.
Will this course be suitable for me?
To be successful on this course, you will need to have achieved at least a C grade in GCSE English. It is also helpful if you have studied GCSE PE or Level 2 Sport, but this is not essential. You should be interested in Sport, Human Anatomy, Sports Coaching and Outdoor and Adventurous Activities. The course involves quite a bit of writing!
What could this course lead to?
Students taking this course have gone on to study Sports Science, Sports Coaching, Outdoor Leadership and Event Management at University. Others have moved onto apprenticeships in the fitness industry or employment. This qualification can also help with military based careers.
