You will develop practical skills in your specialist areas and also learn about the other factors that contribute to improving performance.
Lessons are enjoyable and productive and delivered by experienced staff in a supportive and nurturing environment.
Practical lessons are delivered to teach theoretical concepts and practical skills in a safe environment.
Our students achieve Outstanding Results! In 2016 91% of our learners studying on the BTEC Subsidiary Diploma achieved a Distinction- Distinction* grade.
Many of our students progress on to university to study sport related degrees such as teaching; physiotherapy; Sports Coaching; and Sport Science as well as other non-sport related fields.
The PE department is brilliant because the staff are extremely supportive and helpful. Carmel is a great college and I find BTEC Sport very interesting as I enjoy learning about how the body works. I would recommend this subject because it can lead to a wide range of degree subjects.
