Level 3 NCFE Certificate in Sport (Outdoor)

For anyone wanting to develop their sporting skills, knowledge and general fitness, and for those considering a career in the sport and fitness industry.

Units include:

  • exercise, health and lifestyle
  • preparing for a career in sport and physical activity
  • principles and practices in outdoor adventurous activities
  • sport nutrition
  • outdoor and adventurous activities
  • principles of anatomy and physiology.

This is a one-of-a-kind programme, specific to us here at City of Portsmouth College. Tailored to the outdoor industry, you will get the opportunity to participate in paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking and other adventurous activities. You will gain fundamental knowledge in sports nutrition, and how nutrition impacts your anatomy and physiology.

A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including maths and English.

This is a full-time course for one year at our Highbury Campus.

You will be assessed through a variety of ways (activity, group work, photographic and video) which will be presented through a portfolio of evidence. You will have weekly tutorials and receive feedback every six weeks to discuss your progress and to set achievement targets. All of our programmes are planned around your individual learning needs, with a timetable that clearly identifies the sessions that will be taught. You will be assigned a Programme Lead who will support you throughout your time in College. Teaching, coaching and learning support staff will work closely with you and your parents/carers to help you achieve planned learning goals.

School Leavers under the age of 19 do not have to pay fees on any full time courses, though may have to pay for their second year if turning 19 during their studies. If you’re aged 19 or over you might qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan. It’s easy to apply for and you won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £25,000. If you are studying a part-time course and you receive one of the following benefits, or you depend financially on someone who does, you may be entitled to have your tuition fees waived: Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support. You will, however, have to pay any awarding body/assessment fees (unless you are on a first full level 2 course). * If you are in receipt of Working Tax Credit or receive other allowances, you may be eligible to claim concessionary rates. If you are entitled to a fee concession you will be asked to provide proof of your entitlement. It is essential that you inform us if your entitlement changes at any time during your course.

This programme could lead to a higher-level course at university or prepare you for employment in the sport and leisure industry.
