Students work in small teams alongside our sports coach in order to achieve a Level 1 BTEC in Sports and Active Leisure.


This qualification provides an engaging and relevant introduction to the world of sport and active leisure. The sport and active leisure sector covers a wide range of activities, and so the choice of units available enables the precise nature of the qualification to be tailored to meet the interests and progression aspirations of individual groups of students. Students are able to learn about aspects of how the body works, how to plan programmes for their own fitness, taking part in different sorts of activities, how to assist with running an event, and what it is like to work in this sector. There are also opportunities to understand more about what it means to work as part of a team, and to work safely.
