Course description

Edexcel Level 3 Sandwell Basketball Education & Coaching Programme:

This course is ideal for 16-18 year-olds who have a passion for basketball and an ambition to work in the industry. You must be prepared to gain an academic qualification in Sport as well as developing your basketball playing ability. The course combines an academic qualification with basketball development. You will gain a BTEC Level 3 in Sport alongside weekly training and playing in competitive fixtures. Education takes place in the classroom, computer suite, sports hall and fitness suite at Sandwell College. The basketball element is delivered by qualified coaches who have direct links to clubs. Students will receive 12 hours of teaching and four hours of coaching a week, in addition to indoor and outdoor fixtures.

Each learner will receive an individual player assessment report at the end of the academic year.
