Why Choose the BTEC Level 3 Sport

After receiving your GCSE results you will be thinking of what comes next. There are many options available to you even if you did not receive what you wanted or have changed your mind.  

The Rockley BTEC Level 3 Sport (Outdoor Adventure) is a fully funded course for 16-18 year olds which focuses on the practical approach to studying to achieve success. For those who strive for a learning experience which is not confined to the classroom, this handson course really does allow you to develop the skills you need to get on in life. Engaging and inspiring, these work-related qualifications are suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities. They provide a practical, real-world approach to learning without sacrificing any of the essential subject theory.

We spoke with BTEC graduate Kyro on what he thought of the course and where he is now. 

Kyro lives in Bournemouth and went to Porchester School before attending the BTEC course. He graduated in 2016.

How did you choose the Rockley BTEC Level 3 Sport? I have always been in to outdoor sports and I wanted to do a course that involved that, so I went to the local college. We didn’t get out of the classroom much and I was really unhappy with the course. A friend was already on the Rockley course and suggested I made a call. I got myself an interview and was very quickly enrolled on to the course.

Did you have any previous sailing or watersports experience? I had been sailing twice a year since I was 12 years old with the Scouts and in 2012 I went on a family holiday to Rockley’s AzuRivage centre in France.

What qualifications did you graduate with? I graduated the course with my RYA Dinghy and Windsurf Instructor qualification, RYA Powerboat Level 2 and RYA First Aid.

Where are you now? I am currently working as an Activity Instructor at Rockley Le Lac in my second season with Rockley. This winter I am taking part in the Senior Instructor Development Programme and would like to return to Rockley in 2018 as a Senior Instructor.

What were the best bits of the course? There are so many ‘best bits’ but for me it was the variety of activities we did, the trips we went on and getting to know so many like-minded people.

Was it different to what you expected? Yes and no! My idea of the course was that it would be all round sport. I thought it would be getting out and just doing the activities. But it’s much more, it goes into detail about everything you need to know regarding the world of watersports from sports management and fitness, to the rules and regulations behind running a business.BTEC Open Day

Do you have any tips you would give someone thinking about doing the Rockley BTEC? If you are into outdoor sports, watersports or land activities, get out as much as you can! Spend lots of time on the water and keep up with the course work and you’ll get the qualifications you need while having a lot of fun!
