At the start of each unit, your tutor will explain the assessment procedure for that unit. You will then know how many assignments will be set. The number will vary depending on the unit studied and is a combination between practical and theoretical assessment. The assessments will vary in type e.g. written reports, posters, group working, case study, practical etc.

English and maths are essential life skills that will help you to achieve your best in your studies and progress to your chosen career. If you have not already achieved grade 9-4 in GCSE maths and/ or English at school, this will become a mandatory part of your study.

Whilst completing these qualifications, students may develop the knowledge, understanding and essential skills employers look for in employees. These range from familiar ‘key skills’ such as team working, independent learning and problem solving, to more tricky-to-measure skills such as:

- An appreciation for appropriate behaviour and dress.
- Appropriate interpersonal skills.
- Communicating with professional colleagues/peers and/or hierarchical seniors.
- Supporting other aspiring employees.
- Personal manners and deportment.
- Understanding work practices and how different roles and departments function within an organisation.

All of the above is supported carrying out enrichment experiences with employers and settings in the community.

Days and times of study are subject to change. Timetables are confirmed at the start of term. Normally 3-4 days per week.

On completion of level 2 Sport, you should have developed the skills and knowledge needed to get a job or progress to further study at level 3. The course is designed to give you a route into a career in sport and the units you will complete are designed for you to develop the skills needed to progress.

- Participation in Sport
- Sports Coaching
- Development of skills and tactical awareness
