This 2 year programme is the equivalent to studying 3 A-levels.

Level 3 Sport for females provides a fully supported and rounded provision, delivered in a safe inclusive environment.

Over the two year program, students gain a vast range of knowledge of the sports and active leisure sector. This course supports students looking to build a career in sport, in areas such as exercise and fitness, coaching and leadership, sports development, and the outdoors.

Students are assessed through project practical assessments and assignments based upon real-life sporting scenarios.
