The BTEC Tech Award in Sport has been designed to build on and embed the physical development and skills learnt in Key Stage 3. It is most suited to those students who may decide to follow a career pathway in PE or sport. 

 

The BTEC Tech Award in Sport encourages students to take their first steps towards a career in sport and fitness. They learn essential skills such as preparing to take part in sport and physical activity, taking part and improving the sporting performance of other participants and developing fitness to improve other participants' performance in sport and physical activity.

We regard this BTEC as being equivalent to a P.E. GCSE, with a greater emphasis on internal assignments assessed by your P.E. teacher.
