Progression Routes

Progression Routes


The Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications have been developed to give learners the opportunity to enter employment in the sport and active leisure industry, in particular sports coaching and development. Alternatively, many learners progress internally onto the next level study programme.


The Extended Diploma is equivalent to 3 A-Levels and progression into Higher Education in sports related degrees is an extremely common pathway for sports students, in particular sports science and physiotherapy.


Alternative opportunities include employment in the sports industry and scholarships abroad.


Performance related progression routes may include playing sport at an elite level including the opportunity to represent our partner clubs at first team level. Other performance opportunities include National College Representative teams.


Our successful sporting alumni have secured employment in sport, progressed onto University Degree programmes and some have represented their country in top-level international sports. Meet some of our former students by clicking the image below:
