  • About this course

    The course aims to provide students with a basic understanding of employment in both Sport, Leisure and Uniformed Public Services industries. Both combine elements of working practices in the industry with issues related to health and fitness improvement. 


    Where will I be studying?

    People who choose to work in the Uniformed Public Services, whether this be the Emergency Services or the Armed Forces, often choose to do so because they like variety and a challenge.  These jobs are not conventional desk jobs and staff working in them support each other in order to fulfil their roles successfullly.

    All courses start with a 4 day off-site ‘Bootcamp’ to ensure that both teamwork and discipline, particularly self-discipline are embedded into the course.  There are a variety of trips throughout the year in the UK, which are great fun and help to develop your team work and communication skills.  Students are required to wear a uniform one day a week, on camp and on any trips and you will learn drill and inspection, getting you ready for all aspects of the Public Services.


    Course Details

    What modules are covered?

    Students will study a range of units such as:
    Working in a team
    How the body works
    Introduction to security, volunteering and planning

    Who is the course suitable for?

    This course is designed for anyone wishing to investigate a potential career in Sport or Uniformed Public Services and is seen as a starting point for progression to courses at a higher level. The course is a combination of theory and practical units as well as voluntary work experience.

    How is the course assessed?

    The course is assessed through written coursework and practical demonstrations.

    Are there any extra costs?

    There is an initial contribution to be paid at the start of the course for materials and equipment.  You would also be expected to make a contribution to take part in any opportunities that arose throughout the course such as trips, additional qualifications, (e.g. coaching badges). More details on costs will be provided during the application stages.

    Entry Requirements

    What qualifications will I need?

    Some evidence of studying at GCSE grade D/grade 4/or working at Entry Level 3 literacy and numeracy.


    Next Steps

    On successful completion of the programme students will be considered for either the Level 2 NCFE Certificate in Sport (Outdoor Activities), depending upon their grade and personal career ambition.  The course is designed to provide learners with a route through education that has clear progression pathways into further study or an apprenticeship.
