BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport

This innovative BTEC sport programme is designed to develop leaders of the future and allows students the opportunity to gain valuable experiences as well as an insight into the coaching philosophies of Manchester United, as we aim to develop young people and prepare them for employment.

BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport

In order to enrol onto the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport course we ask for the following:

  • BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sport (90 Credit) 

Units include:

  • Sport and Exercise Massage
  • Analysis of Sports Performance
  • Leadership in Sport
  • Sport as a Business
  • Work Experience (within Manchester United)

The 180-credit BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma extends and deepens the specialist work-related focus from the BTEC Level 3 90-credit Diploma. There is potential for the qualification to prepare learners for appropriate direct employment in the vocational sector and is suitable for those who have decided that they clearly wish to enter a particular specialist area of work. It is broadly equivalent to three GCE A Levels.

Some learners may wish to gain the qualification in order to enter a specialist area of employment or to progress to a higher education foundation degree, HND or other professional development programme. Other learners may want to extend the specialist nature of the subjects they studied on the Level 3 BTEC Diploma or another programme of study.
