Type of Qualification: BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Sport

Level of Course: 1/2


The Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Sport comprises of 120 guided learning hours (GLH) and students will study the course for two years to complete qualification which is the equivalent of one GCSE. 

Students will study four units over the two-year course which are:

  1. Fitness for Sport and Exercise

  2. Practical Performance in Sport

  3. Applying the Principles of Personal Training

  4. Leading Sports Activities

How is the course assessed?

  • Unit 1 – Fitness for Sport & Exercise  

    • This will be assessed by an onscreen exam with a range of questions used to determine the student’s understanding of the physiological requirements to take part in Sport & Exercise which will be marked externally.  

All other units will be assessed through the completion of assignments over the two years. As students complete each unit they will be awarded a pass, merit or distinction grade by their tutor

  • Unit 3 - Applying the Principles of Personal Training

    • Unit 3 is a synoptic assessment which is assessed internally and allows students to pull together the knowledge gained in Units 1 and 2 and relate the content to a real-life situation. 

    • This unit will also be assessed through the completion of assignments.

Additional Information
