BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma Sport

“LEAD Education gave me the opportunity to learn practical skills that I use with my work life and my day to day life. LEAD helped me gain confidence which greatly improved my presentational skills. I went from struggling to speak in front of a handful of people to doing full site safety briefs to whole schools.”

“I left LEAD with a BTEC extended diploma in outdoor education at grade DDD and lots of useful outdoor qualifications, the most important one being my first aid qualification. I have since worked in the Scottish Cairngorms and London and have had the opportunity to practice my skills on white water in Devon and the Lake District. I currently work as a candidate coordinator hiring people who could make great Teaching Assistants, Cover Supervisors and Qualified Teachers. I hope to work alongside Lead in the future and help provide opportunities for the amazing young talent they always develop.”

“LEAD is unlike any other course. You are handpicked as an individual on your potential. If you take the opportunities you are provided and put the effort into extra activities you will leave as an extremely attractive candidate to any employer whether that be in the outdoor industry, the teaching industry or further training. The skills you learn make you a step above.”

BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma Sport

I joined LEAD Education in 2017. I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors and adventure sport. I’d been looking to join a course in the outdoors and when LEAD said they were going to run this programme I joined right away.”

This BTEC programme helped me achieve my career goals. I learned a lot of new skills on this programme and gained national governing body awards that helped me move on into an apprenticeship after graduating with LEAD.” 

I was employed by South Tyneside Council to work over in Thurston (Lake District) for 2 years where I gained higher coaching awards and developed my leadership skills. I’m now at university, enjoying a degree programme in Scotland. LEAD Education helped me hugely to get where I am right now and I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in sport and outdoor coaching.”
