Who is it for
The Level 3 Sport and Exercise Science qualification is similar but by no means the same as the sport studies pathway. It is similar in the fact it is designed to provide
highly specialist, work–related experiences in a range of professions within the sports sector and provide individuals with opportunities to achieve a nationally recognised level 3 qualification (equivalent to A Levels) which will prepare
you well for higher education or going to university. It is also similar in that it will give learners the opportunity to develop a range of techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life.
