Within Key Stage 5 students will study units of work that contribute to a BTEC Level 3 qualification in Sport. These units include a wide range of training, opportunities and practical coaching & Leadership in a range of sporting disciplines.
BTECs embody a fundamentally learner-centred approach to the curriculum, with a flexible, unit-based structure and knowledge applied in project-based assessments. They focus on the holistic development of the practical, interpersonal and thinking skills required to be able to succeed in employment and higher education.
The Extended Diploma is a two-year, full-time course that meets entry requirements in its own right for learners who want to progress to higher education courses in the Sports Industry before entering employment.
At LeAF Studio, we have selected the Extended Diploma/Diploma pathway to allow our students to gain a wide range of skillset for future employment in the sports industry.
Dependent on a student’s remaining A-level options they will either be entered on the Diploma or Extended Diploma in Sport.
