You will be provided with all the resources and materials needed for your programme. However, we have found in the past that learners purchase additional items and by buying in bulk we can gain a good discount. Therefore additional material fees are expected to be paid at enrolment to cover the following:
Two GCSEs at grade 2, preferably including English and Maths, or Functional Skills at E3 in Maths and English. We also require a good reference for attitude, behaviour, attendance and punctuality.
Successful completion of this course will enable you to progress into a range of jobs in the sports industry. Students who achieve a merit in this course have the opportunity to progress to the Level 2 Diploma in Sport.
