This one year course is aimed at students who wish to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work related context. You can also take part in enrichment activities within your Study Programme. Huish Sport runs a comprehensive, wide ranging and extremely successful sports enrichment programme.

The teaching team create a series of relevant assignments, which can be written or activity based, offering variety to your learning. The assessments are completed through a combination of internal and external assessment. There are opportunities to develop skills in English and Mathematics. 

I chose Level 2 Sport as my goal is to be a professional cricketer. The course is perfect for people that are passionate about sport and want to develop personal skills for the future. I enjoy the way the course taught, it’s not just sitting around a table, and we have practical lessons to help us develop our coaching and leadership skills with multiple trips out and around Taunton. Everyone at the College has been really supportive of me especially my teachers and tutor. I didn’t really know anyone when I came to Huish but everyone is so friendly and helpful. It is a great college to go to.

This course can help you take your first steps towards a career in sport and fitness. You’ll learn essential skills such as training and personal fitness, encouraging sports participation and organising and leading events and activities. Units offered include:

You can get the work done easily if you put the time and effort in. It’s not a stressful environment, it only gets hard when you have a build-up of work to do so doing the work before hand is always helpful.The teachers a nice and straight forward, they don’t shout or complain because at the end of the day it’s our course so it’s down to us on what happens. I played rugby for the College. It’s all around a good course and it’s nice if you want to do level three because it leads to it quite nicely.
