The UK action plan for coaching 2006-2016 provides a focus for making the UK’s coaching system the envy of the world.
The Sports Coaching degree supports this by preparing you with the skills and understanding required as a professional sports coach while allowing you to specialise in a choice of disciplines according to your strengths and interests.
While this is a course for coaches, it also includes aspects of sports training and testing, performance analysis, sport development and sport psychology. Each subject builds from the core sport sciences, which is applied through application of knowledge in an extensive range of industry related contexts. Throughout the three years you will journey through a coaching portfolio, which aims to harness the skills acquired and develop your reflective ability within practice.
The BSc (Hons) degree provides you with key transferable skills which can be applied to the workplace or lead you into further academic study.
Students have a range of compulsory modules and optional modules to choose from including:
- Coaching Practice Portfolio (Coaching Theory)
- Sport Development & Leadership
- Skill Acquisition
- Sports Project
- Coaching Children
- Sport Psychology
- Coaching Practice Portfolio (Coaching Pedagogy)
- Coaching Practice Portfolio (Reflective Coaching)
- Sport Industry
- Sport Science for Coaches
Career opportunities include sports coaching, primary and secondary teaching (via successful application for a PGCE), professional internships, sport development and the possibility to continue with postgraduate study, which includes our own MSc Coaching Science.
Students will have access to a wide range of excellent sporting facilities, including: Sports rehabilitation suite, Cross training gym, Spa Baths, Physiotherapy room, 3G sports pitches and Human Performance Laboratory.
