Course Outcomes

A one year course designed to equip over 19s with the skills, confidence and academic qualification to enable them to progress to university. As a learner on this qualification you will be offered a coherent, integrated and supported year of study through which you will gain the knowledge, awareness, skills and confidence necessary for successful undergraduate study in a range of sports related progression routes. Aims:

  • To provide HE progression opportunities for adults who, because of social, educational or individual circumstances do not have the necessary qualifications
  • To give learners a general introduction to the basic concepts, methods and key areas of knowledge within the core disciplines taken and offer a coherent and stimulating framework within which they can broaden their intellectual outlook and make connections between subject areas;
  • To help learners to develop and consolidate the various skills required to enable them to cope successfully with the demands of undergraduate study and to become independent, self-directed learners
  • To establish a positive and supportive learning environment within which learners can build their confidence through successful learning and the sharing of their experience.

The course is 12 hours a week class contact time over 3 or 4 days. At least 20 hours per week self-directed study. 32 weeks
