Level 3 BTEC Sport
Bede's offers both the full BTEC Level 3 National Diploma and the subsidiary BTEC Level 3 National Diploma.
The BTEC course was introduced at Bede's in 2007 and has grown in popularity ever since. BTECs embody a fundamentally learner-centered approach to the curriculum, with a flexible, unit-based structure and knowledge applied in project-based assessments.
They focus on the holistic development of the practical, interpersonal and thinking skills required to be able to succeed in employment and higher education.
The BTEC Sport course is coursework based. The course is very broad and lets pupils experience a wide range of situations and experiences ranging from University sports science laboratory visits to sports coaching at primary school.
The National Diploma is worth up to 112 UCAS points and the subsidiary is worth up to 56 UCAS points.
The Diploma covers units from principles and practices for outdoor and adverturous activities to sports event organisation, giving pupils a breadth of knowledge over the two years.
