BTEC Sport will provide a coherent introduction to study of the sport sector, as part of a two-year programme. In units assessed by assignments, we will create an assignment brief for students to carry out set tasks and create evidence to work-related scenarios. Assignments can include research, projects, investigations, fieldwork, and experiments, and often link theory with practical exercises.  


Mandatory Units:, Anatomy & Physiology (written exam, externally marked must be passed, 1 hour 30 minute exam that will contain a mix of short and long answer questions.), Fitness Training & Programming for Health, Sport & Well-being (synoptic task unit externally marked & unit must be passed), Professional Development in the Sports Industry (internal assignment internally marked, must be passed), + Optional unit at the teacher's discretion
