Course Description

The Level 2 Sport programme is designed to combine practical based learning with the theory that underpins it. The course also includes a Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership, which will develop your leadership skills in real life situations working with people in our community. The two qualifications that you’ll study aim to help your progression into either employment or the next level of qualifications available at Level 3.

There are no additional entry requirements for this course. Please refer to the basic entry requirements.

You will be taught some of the fundamental principles of leading sports activities, which you’ll have a chance to put into practice with local primary school children. There will be theory based elements that will cover topics such as the Human Body and how it changes as a response to short and long-term exercise. There are units where you’ll learn how to play a specific sport such as Badminton, Table Tennis or Basketball and you’ll be taught how to analyse your own and others performance in these sports.

An interest in sport is essential but you must also be committed to volunteering in sport and leisure settings.

There are coursework assessments in a variety of forms, including written, observed and presented assignments.

You can be a part of our sports academy teams or sign up for extensive work experience. Any learners considering a career in the Armed Forces should research into our amazing Combined Cadet Force.

Students may progress onto local sport and leisure sector jobs such as ‘Recreation Assistant’ and ‘Sports Coach’, or Level 3 sport courses (based on performance at Level 2).

Assessments will be ongoing throughout the year.
