If you want to pursue a career in the fitness industry then this is an excellent place to start. This ‘new’ course will provide you with the underpinning skills and knowledge to aid your progression in to a career in fitness and the leisure industry. This is intended as an Applied General qualification, equivalent in size to two A Levels. It is a two-year, full-time course that meets entry requirements in its own right for learners who want to progress to higher education as an exit route, but more importantly this qualification is recognised by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS) for entry straight in to employment as a qualified Level 2 Gym Fitness Instructor; Level 2 Circuits Instructor; Level 2 Exercise to Music Instructor; and Level 2 Aqua Instructor. The qualification carries UCAS points and is recognised by higher education providers as meeting, or contributing to, admission requirements for many relevant courses. Units studied will include: Anatomy and Physiology; Fitness Training and Programming for Health, Sport and Well Being; Professional Development in the Sports Industry; Application of Fitness Testing; Instructing Gym Based Exercise; Self-Employment in the Sports Industry; Exercise and Circuit Based Physical Activity; Instructing Exercise to Music; Instructing Water-based Exercise; and Sport Injury Management. Students will be required to conduct work experience on this programme where a DBS check may be required. This programme can be studied alongside a Specialist Sport Academy option of: Football Academy; Netball Academy; or Rackets Academy (Squash; Badminton; Tennis; Table Tennis).

You will need 4 GCSEs Level 9-4 or equivalent (including a Level 4 and above in either English or Maths and a Level 4 or above in either Science or PE).  You will be required to attend an interview and provide a reference (from an employer or recent school/college report) along with evidence of specific and sustained interest and motivation in fitness; and an ability to cope with a programme of physical activity.

Assessment is through a combination of internally-set and externally-set coursework, online assessments and practical assessments.
