This course is aimed at students who have a passion for sport and are looking to follow a career in sports performance, coaching/teaching, officiating, journalism or medicine. It is a two year course and is equivalent to one A Level. It is designed to be taken as part of a programme of study that includes other appropriate BTEC Nationals or A Levels.

The course uses a combination of assessment styles to help students apply their knowledge to succeed in the workplace and develop study skills to continue on to Higher Education.

The units will be assessed on a scale of Distinction*, Distinction, Merit, Pass and Unclassified
