Learn on the job

The Level 3 Btec extended diploma in sport is a fantastic course for balancing both practical and theoretical aspects of sport, sports science and the sports industry. In recognising that hands-on experiences are just as valuable as classroom-based learning, our BTEC programme hosts some fantastic work placement opportunities.


In year 1 your involvement in work placement is optional, as we want to support you in finding your feet in the new environment, but if you want to dive in, be our guest!


In year 2 you are required to complete 2 hours per week of work placement in 6-week blocks, this allows you to experience different areas of the industry before you commit to a career path. Areas include Sports Business, Sports Marketing, Coaching, Teaching, and Football Development.

Head of Education and Employability, Hanna Storey (former Education Manager) talks to you about the Work Placement Programme
