This Get Started in Sport courses is practical and fun and could be your stepping-stone to success. This is a re-engagement course—for some students this means a fresh start, for others a chance to get back into an educational mindset.
You will have the time and opportunity to focus on key social and life skills, essential throughout your life, while linking them to sport. Based around our on-campus sports facilities, this course prepares you for progression on to other sport courses at the MET.
Working in small classes, with the support of experience tutors and teaching assistants, you will notice that your self-confidence and self-esteem will grow. Level 1 also boosts your social skills and ability to get on with a variety of different people. Our friendly tutors will develop your employability and offer guidance on your future training and career options.
- Practical sessions
- Participation in a wide range of sports and physical activities
- On-site sports facilities
- Additional qualifications as part of course
- Focus on employability and personal development
Your study programme will also include some supported English and maths sessions and provide a first step towards gaining qualifications.
Start at Level 1 if you have at least 2 GCSEs at grade 2 (F) or above, preferably including English and Maths.
An interview with a course tutor will be required.
This course is suitable for students who, for many reasons, have not gained GCSEs. Perhaps you need to boost your confidence after a challenging time at school or maybe you just need some supported learning to help you on track to achieve your goals.
