BTEC Sport provides a practical, real-world approach to learning alongside the necessary theoretical background, giving students the applied knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to prepare for employment or further study. We offer the National Extended Diploma in Sport, worth the equivalent of three A-levels.
Over the duration of the course you will study 14 units, 4 of which are assessed using external examinations; the remaining units are internally assessed through submission of coursework which can take a variety of formats: written work, video footage and Powerpoint presentations, for example.
The course requires you to work independently and with others. The units you’ll study contain a variety of theoretical and practical elements and include Anatomy and Physiology, Sports Coaching for Performance, Sports Injury Management, Business in Sport and the Active Leisure Industry, and Skill Acquisition in Sport.
Past students have gone on to pursue careers in areas such as coaching, physiotherapy, teaching, leisure management and personal training. Tallis students have also recently gone on to Sports Science degrees.
Sport is really successful at Tallis. We have a great track record: in 2017- 18, 91% of our candidates achieved DDD or above with 46% achieving D*D*D*.
