Level: 2

Location: Broomfield Hall

Years: 1

Interview: Y

Course Summary

This Level 2 Sport study programme is designed for students who have already studied at Level 2 but are not advancing to a Level 3 programme due to their GCSE English and Maths grades.

Students will need to have completed the mandatory elements of their previous study, including any externally set assessments and exams.

Entry requirements

You will need to complete an interview and screening test in maths and English. The entry requirements for this course are the successful completion of a Level 2 qualification, but not the GCSE requirements.
 
The study programme will focus on the achievement of English and maths GCSEs.
 
You are expected to maintain high standards of discipline, punctuality and attendance. It is essential that you work to the deadlines set or you risk the chance of not achieving your programme of study.
 
Practical sessions are compulsory, so you must be physically able to
take part in both indoor and outdoor sessions. You will also be expected to volunteer on selected weekends throughout the year to gain work experience at major events such as the Ramathon.

Course Content

The course is made up of a number of units and topics which can include:
  • GCSE English and Maths
  • Physical Activity
  • Community Sports Project
  • Work Placement
It also includes a tutorial session to monitor your progress, set targets, support your main programme of study, help your future progression and enhance your life skills. The completion of your GCSE will enable you to apply for higher level courses.
 
You need to be aware that certain volunteering events take place at weekends and you will be expected to attend these.

How will I be assessed?

You will build a portfolio based around evidence generated by the various assessment methods in each unit. You are expected to work on multiple assessments at any one time. You will be assessed through practical demonstrations, logbooks and performance records, written reports and essays, presentations, workbooks, discussions and vivas.

Maths and English will be assessed through a final exam.

Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?

You will need to have a uniform that is worn every day and when you are on work experience. The minimum expectation for the uniform is that you wear a plain black T-shirt or polo shirt and sweatshirt etc. DC Uniforms can be purchased for £50.
 
All learners must have a tablet or laptop to aid them with their studies.
 
A one-off payment of £50 is required as a contribution towards the end-of-year celebration event, DBS requirements, transport, trips and guest speakers. This money is to be received before November and in return you will have free gym membership for the academic year.
 
There may be additional costs incurred for selected trips or visits.
 
Overseas work placements are available.

For applicants from outside the region or who travel over distance, the College has residential accommodation if required.

Residential accommodation is based at Broomfield Hall Campus. It is single occupancy with a daily meal allowance included in the fees. For further information about our 'outstanding' Ofsted-rated accommodation provision, please contact maria.banks@derby-college.ac.uk.

College powers weight trainer Rosie’s gym career forward

Fitness apprentice Rosie Sharp said Derby College is "100 percent" behind turning her passion for gym training into a new career.
Rosie, 20, decided against going on to further studies after taking philosophy, psychology and law at A-level.
Instead she worked in sales at a sports magazine but eventually found the job was not really for her.
But Rosie has been keen on weight training from the age of 17, and when she found an apprentice job advertised online at B Physical in Ashbourne, she decided to go for it.
Despite having no directly relevant qualifications she managed to demonstrate her commitment to the gym environment and landed the role.
Rosie said she wasn't sporty at all at school and her mum just said "really...?", when she told her she was going to work in her a gym.
She said the college and B Physical worked closely together. She was visited once a week as part of her course.
Rosie has now passed Level 2 Personal Training and is considering going on to Level 3.
In addition, she said she had also taken a sports massage distance learning course and may take her career in that direction.

Derby College has been 100 per cent important for my career because without the qualification I couldn't do what I'm doing – I had no fitness qualifications before I came here.

The college and gym work well together, and it was all relevant to what I needed to learn. It's been really good.
