Course Description

This course will give students the opportunity to develop existing skills and apply them to community sports settings. The aim is to develop students to either be ‘work ready’ for the sport and leisure sector, or progress onto Level 3 courses with the aim of potentially moving onto higher education.

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

  • Level 2 Certificate in Increasing Participation in Sport and Active Leisure in Community Settings
  • Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership
  • Level 1 Leadership Through Football

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.
