BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sports Industry Skills (Leading Children’s Sports Activities)
BTEC Level 2 Diplomas in Sports Industry Skills are intermediate qualifications for post-16 learners who want to specialise in a specific occupation, occupational area or technical role. They prepare learners for work or an Apprenticeship by giving them the opportunity to develop sector-specific knowledge, technical and practical skills, and to apply these skills in work-related environments. The qualifications also provide progression to Level 3 qualifications.
Developed in close conjunction with leading employers, BTEC Level 2 Diplomas in Sports Industry Skills develop transferable workplace skills, such as good communication and the ability to work in a team, which employers have identified as essential for gaining employment in the sector and for progression once the learner is working. At the core of these qualifications is the concept of preparing young people for the working world. Through practical activities and occupationally fit-for-purpose assessments, learners will gain the skills and behaviours needed for sustainable employment.

Whilst studying at the college, learners will have the opportunity to represent Southend United within the Football and Education programme. This involves daily training with our UEFA and FA qualified coaching staff as well as a full weekly games programme.
Our players will follow an individual coaching programme, written by UEFA qualified coaches, that is relevant to the squad they represent. Our coaching sessions include a variety of technical practices, game related practices and small sided games, and physical sessions at our 4G floodlit venue, Garon Park.
Whilst at college our students will play in the EFL’s CEFA League against other professional clubs that run similar programmes. Our students will play in both the South East Regional League as well as the National Cup competitions playing against Norwich City, Fulham FC, Charlton Athletic FC, Brentford FC and others.
Our Football and Education programme has had great success over the last few years in producing players who have gone onto American Scholarships and also playing within the Non-League set up.
LOCATION AND FACILITIES:
3 classrooms equipped with Wi-Fi and IT facilities
4G Floodlit FIFA-approved grass pitches
Here at SUCET, our students are provided with opportunities to enter employment or Higher Education within the sport and leisure industry. As we are based within a Professional Football Club, our students have the opportunity to gain valuable experience throughout the duration of the course, supporting with our community coaches with sessions in schools, working alongside our Media team and Education department.
We feel the work experience on offer at SUCET provides our students with unique career development opportunities within the sport and leisure industry that cannot be experienced at other colleges. Students have successfully applied to go to University to study Sports Coaching and Sports Therapy as well as gaining full-time employment within the sporting sector.
