Level 2 BTEC Sport Award

The skills learnt in studying a BTEC First will aid progression to further study and prepare learners to enter the workplace in due course. In the sport sector, typical employment opportunities may include working as a coach or as a fitness instructor.
BTECs are vocationally related qualifications, where learners develop knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work-related context. Additionally, they are popular and effective because they engage learners to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop skills that are essential for the modern-day workplace.

What will I learn?

BTEC Firsts in Sport can help you take your first steps towards a career in sport and fitness. You’ll learn essential skills such as training for personal fitness, encouraging sports participation, and organising and leading events and activities.

How will I be assessed?

You will complete four units in total, units one and two are compulsory units with unit one being assessed as an online exam. All other units are completed in assignment format which are marked internally by your teachers. Each year Edexcel will sample a selection of folders externally as part of the verification process.

Where will it lead?

BTECs can give you a variety of options, such as:
• Qualifying you to pursue a particular job or work in a particular industry
• The opportunity to study a new qualification
• The opportunity to undertake an Apprenticeship.
If you pass your BTEC and would like to continue studying, you could choose a qualification at the next level. For example, if you have completed a BTEC Level 2 First, you may consider a BTEC Level 3 National, AS/A levels, an NVQ, a BTEC Apprenticeship or a mixture of these qualifications.

How can Parents/Carers help?

Encouraging learners to watch or read up to date sports news is a great help.  To have a good knowledge of fitness, leadership and practical sports performance.
