The UK sport industry is a billion-pound industry and accounts for nearly 500,000 jobs.

Our Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport will help bring the world of sport to life with a range of experiences to give learners a thorough understanding of the facets which help shape sport in the 21st century.

The course will enhance your knowledge and understanding of the sports industry and you will learn within an award-winning organisation, Pompey in the Community, who are at the forefront of sports coaching and development.

You will have access to high performance technology, including testing equipment and sports analytical software. This software is used to enhance your experience on the course and further your understanding of the industry.

As well as the academic possibilities the course has to offer, you will also participate in the National Youth Football League, where you will test yourselves in other professional environments. For this reason, physical preparation is crucial, and therefore students will have access to strength and conditioning that accompanies the training sessions built into the course timetable.
