The BTEC qualification we offer (Level 3 Extended Certificate in Sport) is equivalent to one A level and is studied alongside other A level courses.
The content and assessment methods differ slightly from the A level course and there is more of an emphasis on the vocational side of the subject, this course leans more towards preparing students for a career in the sport, leisure and fitness industry. 30% of the course is internal, continuous assessment, including the practical assessment. The theory side of the course has a mixture of assessment methods as you can see below.
