The 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 newenvironment, but if requested we can support you. 


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.
