About this course

The Gym & Fitness Centres industry was worth £1.7 billion in 2022 and since COVID has grown by 25.2%. The growth in this industry is largely driven by the low-cost gym sector, so we were delighted to strike a partnership with PureGym West Byfleet. Brooklands sport & fitness students will have multiple experiences through the year with PureGym West Byfleet to enhance their knowledge and skills while also offering opportunities for students work experience and employment.​

The Level 2 Certificate in Sport explores the interests of sport, coaching, exercise, and health & fitness. The course will provide the requisite knowledge, skills and competencies for students to successfully transition on to the Level 3 Foundation Diploma / Extended Certificate the following year. The course also provides the requisite preparation for an early career in sport, exercise, or health & fitness. ​

Emily - Level 2 Certificate in Sport​

“I used to be a gymnast for 10 years and have now switched to cheerleading for the last 5 years for Royal Allstars at Silvermere Gymnastics. I also do some coaching of gymnastics and cheerleading”​

“I always had a passion for sport and am the most sporty person in my family. I was fascinated by my Sports Science course, so when mum suggested trying personal training, it made a lot of sense”​
