LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATE IN SPORT COMBINED WITH FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT & ENRICHMENT

The Level 2 Certificate in Sport ‘Working in Sport’ acts as alternative option for those that do not meet the entry level requirements to study for our NCFE Level 3 Extended Diplomas in either ‘Sport & Exercise Science’ or ‘Working in Sport’.

This qualification is suitable for post-16 learners, giving the introductory skills to either start a career in sport or progress onto one of our NCFE Level 3 Extended Diploma qualifications with pathways onto university, U.S. Scholarships, or apprenticeships.

Developed and designed as a full one-year study programme, learners will also receive nine hours per week in player development and industry enrichment experiences.

Learners will develop a range of practical and personal skills, techniques, and attributes essential for progression onto both further and higher education, and successful performance in working life.

COURSE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS?

Learners can secure a place on the NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Sport programme if they have 3 GCSE passes at grade 3 and
above.

WHAT IF I DON’T GET THE GRADES?

During course interview, each learner will be reviewed individually. Learners may still enrol on the level 2 certificate programme even if the above requirements are not met, as learners may demonstrate the ability to succeed in other
ways.
For example, learners may have relevant work experience or specific aptitude shown through diagnostic tests or non-education experience.

 

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

Learners are assessed through a combination of both theory, practical and enrichment learning, with on-going assessment throughout the course to develop a portfolio of evidence. There are no exams.

ENHANCE YOUR MATHS AND ENGLISH GCSE

If required, learners will also have the opportunity to enhance their Maths and English skills including re-sitting their GCSE’s or completing functional skills in all pathways.

THE COURSE UNITS OF STUDY

The Level 2 Certificate in Sport provides learners with an introduction into the sport industry, developing skills and knowledge to support progression onto level 3 extendde diploma qualifications or entry employment opportunities within the sport and leisure industry.
