In BTEC Sport students are able to examine the physiology of the human body. Each body system and its processes are different but work together to produce movement. The course also examines strengths and weakness in sport through the use and analysis of performance techniques. The opportunity to study the dynamics of the sports industry and possible career paths ensures that students can gain crucial employability skills such as critical thinking, creativity and self-presentation.
At Level 3, we are able to develop many of the basic foundations delivered at Level 2 and take them a step further – increasing the breadth and depth of understanding in this hugely wide-ranging field. Sport is rising in prominence and the study of sport offers a wide career path into fields such as teaching and coaching, physiotherapy, sports massage, sports medicine and the armed forces.
For further study at university, the BTEC Level 3 Extended Certificate is accepted alongside other A Levels.
