A BTEC is so much more than a qualification – former BTEC students often say how they continue to apply what they learned on their BTEC course, when they progressed on to further study, started a job, and as they advance throughout their career.

A BTEC gave me a huge insight into the world of coaching by allowing me to learn about other factors that would impact my coaching style from how to deal with different learning methods, deal with different types of learners, visual, verbal and kin aesthetic. 

A BTEC provides excellent opportunities to learn on the course by coaching children and organising events gives you an idea of problem solving, working as a team and a great example of what real-life coaching is like.

Studied: BTEC Level 3 in Sports Development and Fitness

Matthew Bebbington

Studying a BTEC helped me to develop a number of practical skills in my specialist role in the Football industry, but also gave me experience in a variety of other sports. As well as this, the course also gave me vast knowledge around the theoretical side of coaching in regard to underpinning reasons for using certain techniques and/or specific practical session. By studying a BTEC, it opened up a number of pathways to follow post course.

BTEC lessons are really engaging, content rich and delivered by highly knowledgeable, supportive and organised teachers.
