The Tech Award gives learners the opportunity to develop sector-specific knowledge and skills in a practical learning environment. The main focus is on the knowledge and understanding of skills in health, fitness, activity and sport. 

The BTEC Tech Award is split into three separate components:

Component One – Understand the Body and the Supporting Technology for Sport and Activity.

Component Two – The Principles of Training, Nutrition and Psychology for Sport and Activity.

Component Three – Applying the Principles of Sport and Activity. 

Throughout the course learners will develop: 

  • Knowledge of the body systems, common sports injuries and technological advances that impact on sport and activity
  • Key skills that support their theoretical understanding of the training, nutrition and psychological factors that influence and impact on engagement in sport and activity
  • An understanding of the underpinning principles of leadership and the physical and psychological benefits for session participants. Learners will investigate methods of planning, delivering and reviewing sessions for a range of target groups.

Component One and Three are both assessed Internally through the completion of coursework which is then externally moderated. Component Two is assessed through a 90 minute written examination that is externally marked by the exam board (Pearson).
