Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Sports Therapy Bridging Programme

The Bridging Programme has been developed for therapists that have completed the BTEC Level 5 Sport & Remedial Massage/Soft Tissue Therapy, either with ISRM or NLSSM.

We have upgraded over 200 therapists from Level 5 Sports & Remedial Massage/Soft Tissue Therapists to Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation and produced this course to build on the BTEC syllabus.

Whilst it may appear on paper that this bridging programme covers some of the BTEC syllabus, it has been developed with BTEC graduates to ensure that this is not the case.  This course meets the requirements to join the CNHC as a Sports Therapist.

All learners will be required to undertake further home study, plus gain 250 hours of case studies (case studies covered on the original BTEC can count towards these).
