Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

This innovative Level 2 programme has been designed to provide learners with the opportunity to work as an activity leaders in both coaching and fitness industries. Learners are exposed to industry leading digital technologies, including GPS tracking and movement analysis.

The programme prepares learners for the working world, engaging them with external providers, enabling learners to develop entrepreneurial skills within the working world of sport. The programme is one year long and is tailored to provide progression opportunities to our Level 3 pathways, whilst also providing routes directly into employment upon completion. English and maths qualifications (Functional Skills or GCSE) will be embedded into the timetable.

The units are a combination of theory and practical work. This course will cover some of the topics below:

Working in Sport and Activity Leadership
Sports Coaching
Leading and Instructing Coaching and Fitness Activities

How will I be assessed?

The course will have one unit which is externally assessed and 3 units assessed through coursework based projects. Internally we assess learners using a number of different methods, allowing learners to enhance these types of skills holistically throughout the course. The types of assessment methods range from writing reports and creating posters, through to delivering practical sessions and formal presentations.

How do the Sports Academies work alongside this course?

Learners are able to access Sports Academies whilst studying at SGS College on a full-time course. Your academic studies and academy training work as a partnership, and as such, are never timetabled at the same time. This allows you to continue your development within your selected sporting discipline, whilst studying in an academic area that interests you. For example, a learner may have lectures on a Monday morning and then Academy training at WISE on a Monday afternoon.

What do I need to join?

Applicants will hold three GCSEs at grade 3, including English and maths.

How will I learn?

This Level 2 course is based at our dynamic and exciting WISE Campus, located within easy reach of the city of Bristol and moments away from Bristol Parkway and Filton Abbey Wood train stations.

As we have previously discussed, we assess learners using a number of different methods, allowing learners to enhance these types of skills holistically throughout the course. The types of assessment methods range from writing reports and creating posters, through to delivering practical sessions and formal presentations.

Learners are giving regular feedback to support their understanding of the subjects topic areas, whilst also receiving feedback to aid the continued development of their numeracy and literacy skills.

Maths & English

English and maths qualifications will be a part of this course package. Learners will have English and maths lectures embedded into their timetable to support their academic development over the programme’s duration.

Employability

Possible careers and salaries include:

  • Assistant Sports Coach - £18,000 to £23,000 depending upon experience and qualifications held
  • Leisure Centre Assistant - £13,000 to £26,000 depending upon experience and qualifications held
  • Receptionist in the Fitness Industry - £17,000 to £22,000 depending upon experience

Average yearly salary data taken from the National Careers Services website

Work Experience

Every learner at SGS College is tasked with achieving a number of work experience hours during the academic year. We suggest the learner starts to consider their work experience placement at the earliest opportunity.

The work experience element of the course is imperative as it provides the learner with vital insight into possible roles within the industry. Each of our courses has a high amount of employer engagement, with the aim to expose the learner to possible destinations once the qualification has been completed. Is it these experiences and engagements that allow our learners to develop holistically and to become industry ready.

What can I do next?

A large number of our learner’s progress onto our Level 3 programmes in either Sports Coaching or Fitness and Personal Training. Following the successful completion of this qualification, learners could also apply for L3 apprenticeships in the related field. English and maths achievement will play a part in gaining access to these qualifications. Employment options after achievement include the armed forces and customer facing roles in the industry.
