Who is this course for? Health, sport and wellbeing is one of the largest sectors of the sport and leisure industry. National concerns about obesity, poor health, community cohesion and safety, school PE provision and anti-social behaviour have resulted in greater participation in physical activity and sport becoming a top government priority, and an area of significant public expenditure. This course is designed for those who wish to work in this exciting and challenging field. The focus of the course is on engaging people and encouraging and enabling them to participate in sport and physical activity. It will give you the skills, knowledge and ability to run your own coaching sessions, programmes and sports events.

What will I study? The foundation degree is based upon building a variety of academic / research skills through the examination of key issues in health, sport and well-being, which will give you the skills necessary to study these issues in greater depth should you complete the top up year.

They are however an integral part of the learning strategy for a module and you are required to complete them. They will be assessed and you will receive feedback on your standard of work and level of achievement. Formative assessments serve to assess your learning as the module progresses. Summative assessments are those assessment activities for which the

marks will contribute to the overall module grade. You will also receive feedback on these assessments so that you will know what you have done well and where you can improve. In this way, summative assessment provides valuable learning for modules which are to follow. Many of the formative assessment tasks will either serve as preparation for your summative assessment tasks or provide an opportunity for a “practice run�. Many different forms of assessment are employed on the programme for both formative and summative purposes, the major forms being as follows: coursework (usually essays and reports); written examinations; practical assessments (particularly for coaching modules); skills portfolios/personal development Plans; case studies; oral presentations (individual and group) and poster presentations.

A guide to qualifications and levels

Qualifications unpicked

Higher National Diploma

Honours Degree

For those students wanting a practical route to the workplace

An honours degree is a grading classification in the UK that distinguishes achievements of undergraduate students. A degree with honours denotes a degree in a given subject that requires a higher level of academic learning and achievement.  

Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) are work related Higher Education qualifications. While degrees tend to focus on gaining knowledge, HNDs are designed to give you the skills to put that knowledge to effective use in a particular job. They are highly valued by employers both in the UK and overseas. Because HNDs are designed to give you the skills for a particular field of work, they can lead straight to a career. You can often go on from an HND to study a degree as they are the equivalent of one or two years of university study. So completing a HND can allow entry into the second or third year of a bachelor’s degree, dependent on the course.

Higher Apprenticeships A great alternative to university which offer training up to degree level with both on and off the job training options. Higher apprenticeships are available in a range of subjects.

44

Foundation Degree An alternative to university with a practical and industry related ethos Foundation Degrees are modern, Higher Education qualifications that are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge that businesses are looking for. They can also offer an alternative route into Higher Education at a university. A Foundation Degree usually takes two years of full-time study to complete, and sits at the same level as the Higher National Diploma and equivalent to the first two years of a three year bachelor’s degrees.

Our Foundation Degrees are run in conjunction with a variety of HE institutes including universities of Bolton, Derby and Hertfordshire and if you successfully complete the Foundation Degree course and achieve good grades, you may progress onto a third year with this or other institutions to top up your Foundation Degree to a full honours degree. Alternatively, you could progress on to further professional qualifications, or use the Foundation Degree to change or further your current career.

Over 85% of our Access students go on to study full degrees or Foundation Degrees at universities across the UK.
