BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (QCF)

Specification: Edexcel










What is a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma?

The BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport is a full-time vocational qualification that is equivalent to 3 A-Levels (however we are able to adapt the course to the 90 or 120 credit diploma, which is the equivalent to 1 or 2 A-levels). The programme is designed to enable students to gain both academic and practical experience and become competent in areas that are directly related to the workplace. However, it is important to note that there is a significant amount of research involved in studying for this qualification.

This course allows you to develop skills in a sport environment focusing specifically on the Performance and Excellence pathway of the course, and apply key analysis within practical sport performance.

The course provides progression opportunities into vocationally relevant employment or higher education.

Who is the course for?

  • For those with a strong interest in sport, coaching, instructing teaching or sciences and an interest in developing athletes ability through analysis and research studies
  • For students who wish to develop a career in Sport Coaching or Sciences (Coach, Teacher, Gym Instructor, Psychologist, Biomechanist, Nutritionist and Kinaesiologist), Sports Therapy and Physiotherapy)
