Why study Level 3 BTEC Sport and Exercise Sciences?
The Subsidiary Diploma, Certificate and year one of the Extended Diploma involve a variety of theoretical and practical units. Assessment is in the form of assignments which involve realistic, workplace activities.
Year two of the Extended Diploma will allow students to specialise in one of three ‘pathways’ in Coaching and Teaching (incorporating a Level 3 Award in Community Sports Leadership), Sports Injuries (incorporating a Level 3 Sports Massage qualification) or Fitness Instructing (incorporating Level 2 Fitness Instructor course).

All courses will have a selection of units including physiology, psychology, injuries, massage, as well as a range of practical units.
It is excellent preparation for university courses in Sports Science, Sports Studies, Sports Therapy and Physiotherapy. The courses are also recognised by employers in the health and fitness industry, sports injury clinics, coaching and sports development.
