Practical Vs Theory
The BTEC Level 3 National Diploma in Sport, Fitness and Personal Training is equivalent in size to two A levels. It is a two year, full time programme for those who want to work in the health and fitness industry including as a gym instructor and personal trainer. The qualification provides the knowledge and develops skills required for professional accreditation with CIMSPA (Chartered Institute of Management for Sport and Physical Activity) as a Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer.This course is delivered in partnership with Rhinos Gym Stamford who provide some of the gym space used during practical sessions. The course also utilises the gym at Borderville Sports Centre.
With the skills and experience I have gained at New College Stamford studying Sport I have been able to secure a job as a Sports Coach at Little Kickers!
