HNC/HND Sport and Recreation Management

HNC/HND Sport and Recreation Management

This Award Replaces the HND Leisure Management

This award has been running in a number of centres. The feedback from colleges is very positive and students have found the new award to be challenging, yet rewarding, as the new Units reflect the ever changing dynamic landscape of the Sport and Recreation industry.

All of the HNC/HND Units have exemplar material available for delivering staff and this can be accessed by the SQA Co-ordinator from the SQA secure website. The contextualised nature of the exemplar material has engaged students and delivering staff have found the material to be supportive and topical.

Students who successfully complete their HNC/HND and select specific optional Units can also apply for the Institute of Sport and Recreation Management (ISRM) professional qualification. Specific information on this ISRM partnership can be found in the updated Arrangements document. A number of colleges see the link with ISRM as very positive and are offering the HNC direct to Local Authority staff on a part time basis.

The course has been designed to enable centres to offer tailor-made programmes to meet the needs of their student population while maintaining the business flavour of the mandatory Units.
