    About Higher National Diploma in Sport

    Program Highlights

    As the demand for sports professionals has been on a constant rise, the requirement for professionals to acquire sport-specific skills is mandatory. The basis of sport is vital social, educational, and cultural values. It is the combination of involvement, integration, acceptance of differentiations, tolerance, and fulfilment of rules. Students would require both relevant qualifications and employability skills to enhance their career prospects and contribute to their personal development.

    The qualifications embed throughout the program the development of key skills, attributes and strengths required by current employment standards.

    The Higher National Diploma in Sports provides a solid grounding in the field of sports, through which the learners can progress towards their bachelor’s degree in sports business. The Pearson BTEC will have developed a sound understanding of the principles in their field of study and learners will have learned to evaluate the appropriateness of different approaches to solving problems.

    The purpose of BTEC Higher Nationals in Sport is to develop students as professional, self-reflecting individuals able to meet the demands of employers in the sports sector and adapt to a constantly changing world. The qualifications aim to widen access to higher education and enhance the career prospects of those who undertake them.

    The HND in Sports is delivered across 15 modules and is meant to meet the increasing need for professional, technical, and educational pathways, through a focused curriculum that prepares them for future degree-level studies and/or industry work.

    The curriculum promotes experiential learning through group projects, practical assignments, and class partnerships to better mirror the real-world workplace. We replicate scenarios and increase engagement through a combination of study and practical training. This ensures that learners are always learning and honing their skills.

      Choosing to enroll as an HND fashion design student at Westford University has been one of the best decisions I have made.
