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.

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