Entry RequirementsStudents studying a BTEC Extended Diploma programme should normally have achieved an average GCSE point score of 4.5 or above and at least a Grade C in Maths and/or English. Alternatively, students who have studied a Level 2 Diploma/Certificate or a BTEC First Diploma in a related subject should have achieved at least Merit grades.
AssessmentYou will study a total of 19 units during the two years of the course. All of the units are assessed by coursework – and this may include the production of portfolios, presentations, practical projects, and staff observations. None of the units require you to sit a formal examination.
ProgressionStudents on the BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport can progress to a Higher Education degree in Sports Science or Sports Studies, which in turn could lead to a PGCE in Teaching.
