Where does this course lead?
Supporting over 450,000 jobs in the UK, sport is a £20bn industry and this fast growing sector now ranks among the top 15 mainstream activities in the economy. The huge amounts of money in UK sport means that there are more jobs to pursue in than ever before. You may choose to continue your studies at university and work at the cutting edge of elite sport, supporting top athletes as sports scientists, sports psychologists, strength and conditioning coaches, sports therapists or coaches. Alternatively, you may opt to pursue a career in teaching or working within the health sector. If continuing your studies at university is not the right pathway for you, you may enter the leisure industry and undertake employment or further training. Your BTEC course will prepare you for whatever your chosen next step is and will provide extensive careers guidance to support you. Opportunities in sport today are exciting and vast.
The PE department is brilliant because the staff are extremely supportive and helpful. Carmel is a great college and I find BTEC Sport very interesting as I enjoy learning about how the body works. I would recommend this subject because it can lead to a wide range of degree subjects.
