You will learn through a large range of theory and practical units followed by opportunities to practice and develop skills and experience outside of the classroom environment. This could include coaching, physical activity, and sport sessions.

Where could this course take you?

After successfully completing this course you can progress on to a higher education course in sport. For example an HND or a Foundation Degree.
