The BTEC Level 3 Sport (Outdoor Adventure) is a 2-year full time course that is equivalent to 3 A-Levels and represents the ultimate vocational course by preparing you for University and Industry. The course does this by combining the BTEC Sport programme with practical activities, work experience and employer valued, professional National Governing Body (NGB) instructor qualifications.
