Higher Diploma in Sports Therapy

 

 

Higher Diploma in Sports Therapy

 

Sports therapy encompasses a wide range of skills and knowledge to underpin competency in assessing and treating people, both in the sporting and clinical environments. A sports therapist will be proficient in helping people of all ages recover from injuries and sporting conditions, and return to any previous level of activity with minimal risk of further injury. This often entails guiding a person beyond being able to carry out normal daily activities, and back to being able to perform complex actions under differing types of physical duress.

If you have already completed modules that may contribute to our Higher Diploma Sports Therapy qualification and you wish to apply for an exemption, please forward evidence to support your claim  for ‘recognised prior learning’ (RPL) and we will respond accordingly.  Please note that copy certificates or educational transcripts, plus the associated syllabus for each topic will be required. They must show the awarding body, level, title, and date.

 

Modules or units demonstrating knowledge and/or competency in key areas must be recognised independent educational units and not topics forming part of other modules.

 

 

> Course Assessment & Award

 

Upon completing both modules with observed assessments on each, you will also be rquired to complete a case study aligned to specific guidelines and learning outcomes. 

 

Observed Assessments – you will be required to complete specific tasks during the practical training which will demonstrate your understanding of the various topics on each module.

 

Case Study Report - you will be required to compile a comprehensive report based on the course guidelines to show your ability to construct a rehabilitation programmme to meet the individual needs of your client.

 

This must be done within 3 months of attending your final module. If you are working towards the Higher Diploma in Sports Therapy, this case study supercedes the requirement for one on the L5 Sports Massage Award.
