Whether you want a career in sport or just want a qualification that is widely recognised by universities and employers then a PE course is for you. Sport qualifications offer you the chance to develop a wide range of highly desirable, transferable skills through practical means. They demonstrate your ability to work as part of a team, improve social skills and show you understand how to live a healthy lifestyle.
