    The Level 2 Sport course will put you ahead of the game not only due to this course but also with all of the additional qualifications but also the trips and experiences that you will have whilst on the course making your CV or job interview even more interesting! The Level 2 Sport course aims to give you an understanding of the sport industry through a wide variety of units.You’ll study units such as Outdoor Adventurous Activity where you will participate in 6 weeks of tuition in skiing and kayaking! Throughout the course your coaching and leadership skills will be tested with units such as Planning and Leading Sports Activity, where you will take charge of a Primary School Sports Event - not for the faint hearted!. As you can imagine, the course is very physical and you’ll be expected to take part in all activities. But it’s not just your physical fitness, the tutors are interested in. They also want to equip you with the mental skills. That’s why you’ll get the chance to brush up your functional skills. Functional skills are a range of skills that help you to succeed in education, employment, lifelong learning and personal development. Functional skills qualifications are in English and Maths and are an integral part of your learning experience. It will help you to develop skills in problem solving, teamwork, delivery of presentations and essay writing. It should be of no surprise that the course requires you to undertake sporting activities. You will be provided with a Gloucestershire College Sports kit. The tutors also have great links with the sports industries, enabling opportunities to our students not otherwise available. As part of the course residential trips and other activities will be arranged and these will attract a fee. Full details will be given to you at the beginning of the course.

At Gloucestershire College we want students to develop their English and maths skills so that they achieve their learning goals and future career aims. For this reason all full-time students who have not achieved grade A* to C English language or maths GCSE will study these subjects as part of their course.
