What we have to offer...

BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sport & Excellence

The structure of the BTEC Level 2 course is the perfect balance between classroom-based learning and practical activities.

We’re proud to be able to offer our students a relaxed atmosphere to learn and the opportunity to transfer what they’ve learned in the classroom through structured, practical training sessions.

Students will work to complete a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sport, which is an academic equivalent to 4 GCSEs. We provide fantastic progression opportunities for those learners with aspirations to study a BTEC Level 3, as well as providing the knowledge and skills needed for employment or apprenticeships.

Students will gain the knowledge required for a substantial understanding of the principles of sport. Lesson modules include anatomy, physiology, sports psychology, sports coaching, and sports research.

Duration: 1 Year

Study mode: Full-time

OUR COURSES ALLOW students to further their love of sport and passion for learning!

BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sport & Excellence

We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming and supportive environment so that our students can thrive. The course is run in partnership with Cardiff and Vale College and provides students with an insight into the practicalities of the sports industry, in a non-traditional learning environment.

Theoretical lessons cover a wide range of subjects. Units include Anatomy and Physiology, Coaching for Performance and Fitness Testing.

Our passionate tutors work closely with each individual to understand their needs to help them progress to university or employment. We support student’s ambition to progress into higher education or employment by mentoring, using our expertise, and our ability to arrange relevant work experience within the sports industry.

As part of the course, students will be offered the chance to complete Essential Skills Wales qualifications and re-sit Maths and English GCSEs.

This qualification is equivalent to three A-levels and provides the entry requirements for most major Universities.

We also provide students with extra-curricular opportunities throughout the course, including volunteering opportunities with Cardiff City Football Club, and the chance to complete FAW Level 1 coaching qualifications.

Duration: 2 Years

Study mode: Full-time

Futsal is a great way to develop football skills that can be used in the larger 11-a-side game!


One of the most unique aspects of the Further Education programme is that our student's time is split between theory and practical learning.

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small-sided football match, the game places a large emphasis on technical skill-and-ability in situations of high pressure.

We boast 3 modern Futsal courts where our students represent Cardiff City FC in the Association of Colleges Futsal League, playing against Premier League and English Football League opposition on a weekly basis.

Male and Female teams have recently tasted success, winning the South West Division Title, and the Girls Futsal Shield.

Parents or guardians are not required to attend the Taster Session.
