Certificate in Sport 2 x GCSE re-sit - Level 2Apply Now »
Location: Broomfield Hall
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.
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.
The course is made up of a number of units and topics which can include:
GCSE English and Maths
Community Sports Project
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Sport
Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Public Services
Level 2 Gym and Fitness Instruction
Alternatively you may wish to seek employment or an apprenticeship in the sport and active leisure industry.
