BTEC Sports

This is a vocational or work related qualification.

You will have the opportunity to gain specific knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to the sport and active leisure industry.

This qualification can also be used in conjunction with others to access higher education and more specialist courses.

Assessment will be through accredited assignments set by the course tutor. These will take a variety of formats.

Designated assessment criteria must be met to attain the required grade.

It will be important to provide evidence of your skills and knowledge in each unit.

Who can study BTEC Sport?

Essentially anyone who achieves the minimum St. Louis entrance requirements can choose to study BTEC sport.

However, it is highly recommended that you have studied PE at GCSE level, and have gained a grade B or above.

Students who have not studied GCSE PE can still take BTEC Sport. However, you will need to demonstrate a strong interest in sport and must be prepared to work hard to catch up!

The course suits hard working pupils, and particularly those who are willing to spend time and effort on producing coursework to a high standard.
