Students will study Anatomy and Physiology, Fitness Training and Programming for Health, Practical

Sports Performance and Professional Development in the Sports Industry. The Anatomy and Physiology

examination focuses on the body systems, including the cardiovascular and respiratory systems and how

they adapt to improve sporting performance. The Fitness Training unit focuses on the evaluation of a

client’s lifestyle, with the aim of creating a training programme to improve their health and fitness. Both of

these units are externally assessed. All other units are coursework based and will be in the form of written

reports, presentations and group tasks. These units will provide the students with a broad range of

knowledge in this sector. The course will be taught in a practical way with students placed in vocational

situations. We feel this method of teaching prepares students for the workplace, with many students

perusing a career in this sector.

Entry requirements

It is advised that students have achieved at least a GCSE PE grade 5 or level 2 BTEC at a Merit or above

in order to access the course as well as a grade 5 in English. It is also recommended that students are

participating regularly in two sports. Students will also need a high level of organisation and the ability to

skills required for university.
