Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme are excited to launch two new pathways for Level 3 learners from September 2020. The new BTEC Level 3 Nationals in Sport suites have been developed in collaboration with professional bodies, employers and Higher Education to meet industry and university standards for progression. These new pathways are now linked closer to direct employment than ever before with applications to join CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity), a direct outcome of the programme. Both pathways attract UCAS points and are therefore direct routes to Higher Education.

The Extended Diploma in Sports Coaching and Development pathway allows for learners to enter the employment as a multi-skills coach by applying for CIMSPA membership at the end of the programme. Alternatively, the Extended Diploma in Sporting Excellence and Performance pathway allows for learners to experience a study programme aimed at progression into elite performance or working with elite performers.

Education Manager, Ed Kinsey stated, “With the quality of staff at Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme, it makes these two new pathways an exciting opportunity for new students. Our highly trained, industry qualified staff, will provide unique and robust, delivery and assessment of the programmes.”

Applications for level 1, 2 and 3 programmes continue to be live for learners wishing to enrol for starts in September 2020. Apply or find out more by using Sheffield Progress or email [email protected]
