    About

    The main aim of the ITEC Level 3 Award in Taping and Strapping for Sport and Active Leisure is to enable learners to gain the practical and theoretical skills necessary to provide taping and strapping for the Sport and Active Leisure Industry. It has been designed for practitioners currently working in sport and active leisure, including osteopaths, physiotherapists, sports therapists and massage therapists. The purpose of this specialist qualification is to enrich practitioners’ understanding of taping and strapping techniques relevant to general support and to limit specific movement. It will provide learners with techniques to facilitate taping and strapping techniques.
    Using a combination of Athletic Tape such as Zinc Oxide, and Kinesiology Tape, we will look at the best applications for both to use in a sport or clinical environment.
