The Course

Summary

This course course will teach you the most important aspects of sports coaching and physical education. These essential elements include sport development, applied coaching pedagogy (how people teach and learn), athlete development, physiology and psychology. You’ll learn how to apply all of this knowledge and as a result, help make you more effective in teaching, coaching or other broader areas of sport development. While on the course, you’ll have the opportunity to gain nationally recognised coaching qualifications, complete work placements in local schools and sports clubs, and apply to internship programmes to spend time working with professional sports teams or other sectors of the sports business. You’ll develop experimental and analytical skills, as well as transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, problem solving, creative thinking and independent working.

We also offer optional training programmes to improve strength and conditioning coaching and you’ll have the opportunity to join a number of sports clubs and societies as part of Active Anglia. We work closely with Living Sport and Cambridge City Council to provide additional work experience opportunities. You’ll have the chance to work on community projects that will improve the confidence and ability of those from disadvantaged backgrounds, opening up opportunities to work in youth development in the future. You’ll be able to choose from a wide range of careers once you graduate. These might include teaching (school/college), coaching (community level or performance), performacnce analysis, physical training, sport development, and the wider health, fitness and leisure industry.

We have links with many sports organisations, and you’ll have the opportunity to do research projects with them while you’re studying. This offers an early insight into the world of employment, and keeps you up-to-date with who’s hiring. While you’re studying, we also encourage you to become a student member of UK Coaching, to keep up with the opportunities in the sector. Graduation doesn’t need to be the end of your time with us. If you’d like to continue your studies we offer a wide range of full-time and part-time postgraduate courses, including MSc Sport and Exercise Science.
