BTEC Sports & Exercise


We are delighted to be able to offer the Extended Diploma (18 unit) course in this discipline. The course is aimed at students who have a passion for sport and are seriously considering a career in a sport related field. BTEC Sport is the equivalent of 3 A levels and is spread over two years. There are no formal examinations and you are assessed continuously throughout the course.

Modules will include:

- Anatomy and Physiology
- Current Issues
- Leadership
- Assessing Risk
- Psychology
- Coaching
- Nutrition and Fitness


Successful completion of the course opens up the possibility of employment or university entry. Students will have the opportunity to work with highly specialised coaches and to use our outstanding facilities. The Elite Sports Programme at Dyke House College allows us to offer the best possible experience to those choosing this option. We host the Academy of Hartlepool United Football Club and our students benefit significantly from this link. Some of our students are already considering the possibility of sports scholarships at universities across the USA. Sports Management, Coaching, Personal Training, Psychology are only some of the growth areas for employment in this area.
