Level 3

Sport BTEC Certificate/Extended Certificate

COURSE OVERVIEW

The Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Certificate in Sport is intended to be an Applied General qualification for post-16 learners wanting to continue their education through applied learning. It is intended to be studied alongside other Level 3 qualifications to give an introduction to the sector.

The content of this qualification has been developed in consultation with academics to ensure that it supports progression to higher education. Employers and professional bodies have also been involved and consulted to confirm that the content is appropriate and consistent with current practice for learners who may choose to enter employment directly in the sport sector.

FURTHER INFORMATION

You need a minimum of five GCSEs at 9-4, including grade 4 in English Language.

Students need to have an interest and passion for sport and its different facets, particularly how sport affects performance in body, mind, health, fitness and nutrition. An interest and knowledge of a range of sports is desirable as well as current affairs in sport, which will allow students to understand the theory from their own knowledge and experiences.
