Do you want to turn your passion for sport into a career? Through blending theory and practice, you’ll learn the science and physiology of fitness; explore training methods and play various sport to enhance your understanding of the rules, regulations and the physical requirements of different activities.

This is an excellent springboard to prepare you for degree level study or work in the sport and active leisure industry.

Learners will gain an in-depth understanding of the structure of the sport and leisure industry and gain the skills and knowledge for employment in sports development or coaching taught by qualified professionals from Chelsea Football Club.

A key distinguishing feature of the college is our links with employers and the ways in which we incorporate this into your learning. All students at FES have a work preparation course as part of their full time programme.

Students are encouraged to organise their own work experience, set up an in-house business or work with their Personal Coach to secure a placement at one of our employer partners. Students have the unique opportunity to work alongside our partners, gaining valuable experience and receiving training with interviews for future work placements.
