Sport Studies - Cambridge National


The Cambridge National in Sport Studies enables students to develop and apply knowledge of sports-related activities, with a particular focus on officiating. They explore contemporary issues in sport, different ways of being involved in the sports industry, and the impact of sport on wider society.

The course is taught through four units, each unit having a sports focus, from Contemporary Issues in Sport, Developing Sports Skills, Sports Leadership and Sport in the Media. Students’ time is spent developing their practical skills and expertise which is then placed in real life sporting assignments. This offers flexible learning, as students are able to complete assignments using word processing, video evidence, PowerPoint /verbal presentations and practical demonstrations.


Grade 4 in GCSE PE or level 2 Pass in BTEC Sport (or equivalent)


The course has career links into jobs such as Sports Coaching, Sports Development, Fitness Instruction and Teaching.
