Course summary

Do you have an interest in working with children and young people in a sport or education setting? We have worked closely with organisations such as North East SCITT, Newcastle United Foundation and The Percy Hedley Foundation to develop this Physical Education and Sports Coaching degree. You will study topics including the national curriculum, coaching and teaching styles, child development and SEN, and gain event management experience as you plan and deliver a sporting event. You will develop valuable skills such as teamwork, leadership and organisation through planning coaching sessions. This degree was specifically designed to meet an industry demand for qualified sports coaches and education professionals. The degree regularly hosts guest speakers from industry including strength and conditioning coaches, foundation directors and teachers. You will be supported to secure a work placement of 30 hours for each year of the course in schools, foundations, local authorities and sports clubs. After you have successfully completed your degree you may choose to progress onto a relevant Top-Up degree and then an appropriate Masters degree or PGCE, if you wish to go into teaching. You may decide to look for employment coaching children and young people in foundations or sports teams or work as a teaching assistant in an education setting
