LEVEL 3 EXTENDED DIPLOMA WORKING IN SPORT WITH FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT & ENRICHMENT

The NCFE Level 3 Extended Diploma ‘Working in Sport’ is perfect for post-16 learners who want to progress onto higher education (University or U.S Scholarships), apprenticeships and future employment within the industry, outside of the sport and exercise science sector.

Future careers could include roles within football business, media and PR, journalism, officiating, health and fitness, community sport officer, and many more… 

Equivalent in size to three A Levels, the Level 3 Extended Diploma in ‘Working in Sport’ has been developed and designed as a full two-year study programme, incorporating nine hours per week in player development and enrichment experiences.

This provides learners with the opportunity to develop a range of practical and personal skills, techniques, and attributes essential to achieve their chosen pathway and for successful performance in working life.

COURSE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS?

Ideally learners will need to achieve 5 GCSE qualifications at grade 4 (C) and above (preferably including English & Maths) or Merit overall, achieved from a full level 2 qualification.

WHAT IF I DON’T GET THE GRADES?

Once learners complete the Level 2 Certificate they will have the opportunity to progress onto the NCFE Level 3 Extended Diploma qualification with us.
