Key Stage 4 Cambridge Nationals

What are they?

Cambridge Nationals are vocationally related qualifications that take an engaging, practical and inspiring approach to learning and assessment. Cambridge Nationals in Sport are targeted at 14-16 year olds in a school environment. They’re available as an Award and a Certificate, with the Certificate being the same size as a GCSE. They use both internal and external assessment and the Certificate for both Cambridge Nationals in Sport Science and Cambridge Nationals in Sport Studies are recognised by the recently published DfE Performance Tables for 2015.

Why choose Cambridge Nationals?

Sport is a high-profile and expanding industry and, as such, there is a growing need for qualified professionals and capable volunteers. This can be anything from sport scientists assessing how nutrition, environment and training programmes can optimise performance, through to a sports coach having to develop the skills, tactics and strategies of a team or an individual. Cambridge Nationals in Sport offer students the solid foundation required for further progression in to the industry.

What units would we cover?

The Cambridge Nationals in Sport Science offer students the opportunity to study key areas of sport science including anatomy and physiology linked to fitness, health, injury and performance; the science of training and application of training principles, and psychology in sport and sports performance.
