Sport and Active Leisure

About the course


With the Skills for Sport and Active Leisure qualifications we can look at an individual’s sporting preferences and mould the course to suit their preferences or look at a variety of sports, depending on the student’s requirements. We will look at different exercises, fitness testing, facilities and equipment. Sometimes we may plan a route for cycling or running or look at methods of improving different aspects of a sport. In some of the other units, we may look at planning a fitness programme, or look at how exercise can be part of a healthy lifestyle.


Possible Progression Routes


Colleges run various courses  in this subject area and students can progress on to a higher level course in sports science or coaching. There is a huge variety of jobs available within this industry depending on the type of sport students wish to pursue. Some of the potential jobs could be a fitness instructor, sports coach, P.E teacher or leisure centre assistant.
