This Level 2 Sport study programme is designed for learners who have already studied the Certificate in Sport and are not advancing to a Level 3 programme due to their GCSE English or Maths grades.
Learners will need to have completed the mandatory elements of the Certificate, including the externally set assessments and exams.
You will build a portfolio based around evidence generated by the various assessment methods in each unit. You are expected to work on multiple assessments at any one time. You will be assessed through practical demonstrations, logbooks and performance records, written reports and essays, presentations, workbooks, discussions and vivas.
Maths and English will be assessed through course work, controlled assessment and final exam.
Sports enthusiast Beth Wood is weighing up study options and a potential career thanks to her college course and work placement.The seventeen-year-old Level 3 Sports Coaching and Development student has completed the first year of her course with the offer of an apprenticeship.On work experience, as part of the course, she so impressed bosses at children' coaching company First Grade Sports that they first gave her a job teaching children in holidays and half terms.Now they have now gone one step further and offered an apprenticeship.Beth is also considering whether to go on to higher education at Derby College or whether to experience university life.
She said: "Without the college I wouldn't have got the chance of my work experience, or my job, or the offer an apprenticeship. My work experience helped me to understand how to teach different ages and abilities. It also helped improve my confidence, helping me feel comfortable in my own ability and knowledge."
