BTEC in Sports
WHAT DOES THE COURSE INVOLVE?
During the course students will learn about the many facets of the sports sector as well as experiencing different roles within practical sport (such as performers, leaders, officials and coaches). In addition students will have the opportunity to further their skills in a range of individual and team sports.
The Units that students study are:
· Leading Sporting Activities
· Training for Personal Fitness
· Fitness for Sport & Exercise
· Practical Sports Performance
Each of these units has elements which are delivered in the classroom and some elements that are delivered practically. Any opportunity to deliver any part of the course in a practical lesson will be taken.
HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
In addition to an exam in Fitness for Exercise, students are assessed by a number of coursework assignments that are completed within each of the three other units. Students have to gather a range of evidence to complete the assignments. Deadlines are set regularly for each assignment which must be met.
WHAT OTHER THINGS SHOULD I CONSIDER?
The BTEC qualification allows students to still participate practically in sport but be assessed via coursework projects which consist of examples of activities completed within PE lessons.
WHAT COULD I DO NEXT WITH PE?
The BTEC course provides a wide range of knowledge and skills which act as an excellent foundation to an employment environment. Alternatively, the qualification can be used as a base for progression towards further education qualifications.
For further details of this course please contact Mr Batch or any of your PE teachers.
