BTEC Option 9s, 10s & 11s  BTEC Level 2 First for Sport Level 2  

BTEC Firsts are vocationally-related qualifications designed to develop learners’ knowledge and understanding through the application of learning and skills in a work-related context. BTEC Firsts are designed to allow learners to progress to other level 2 qualifications or apprenticeships, to junior roles in the industry they are learning about or level 3 qualifications.

The BTEC Firsts in Sport have been developed to give learners a stimulating and engaging introduction into the world of sport. Learners can gain knowledge, skills and understanding through practical participation and performance in a range of sports, exercise, and health-related fitness activities. This allows students to become familiar with the language, skills and processes required to work in the sport and leisure industry.

The BTEC philosophy of ‘learning through doing’ remains at the heart of this qualification. Learners are given the opportunity to gain a broad understanding and knowledge of skills in sport.
