Fast Track Level 3 Diploma in Sport and Physical Activity (Outdoors)

SF-40

This course is designed specifically for students that are aged 18 and are keen to work in the industry and get fast tracked to be an instructor. This is perfect for someone that may be considering a gap year and wanting to do further training and travel. Students that complete this are often joining us from other Sixth Forms or Colleges after completing A Levels or another Level 3 programme. This course is equivalent to 1 and ½ A Levels and carries UCAS points so assists with progression to university.

Entry requirements: 4 GCSEs at grade 4 including English or Maths

Assessment: Combination of coursework and practical assessments

This is a very practical based course and covers the following units:

  • Exercise, health and lifestyle
  • Preparing for a career in sport and physical activity
  • Principles & Practices in Outdoor Adventure
  • Skills for Water-based Outdoor and Adventurous Activities
  • Skills for Land-based Outdoor and Adventurous Activities
  • Leading Land Based Outdoor and Adventurous Activities
  • Leading Water Based Outdoor and Adventurous Activities
  • Personal and professional development
  • Work Experience in Sport

This programme is designed to give you the opportunity to develop as an outdoor instructor and experience the lifestyle of working abroad by completing work experience in one of our French Centres. Effectively, it’s like a structured Gap Year in a supportive environment and all on your doorstop with little to no costs.

Instructor Training Programme

As part of this course, you will also have the opportunity to sign up to further optional training and complete RYA Training and Qualifications to prepare you to work as an RYA Instructor in Watersports. As you will only be at Rockley for a year on this course, you will need to choose areas to focus on unless you have extensive previous water sports experience. You will have the opportunity to choose from the RYA syllabus in Sailing, Windsurfing, Powerboating and First Aid and various inhouse qualifications in Paddlesports, Mountain Biking, Orienteering, Raft Building etc.

What Next?

After this programme you could continue with your studies in sport at university or an apprenticeship. If you have taken part in our optional Instructor Training Programme you will have the instructor qualifications you need to instruct watersports and be employable as an RYA Instructor or Outdoor Activity Instructor.
