Course summary

This course helps you to develop to a high professional standard, ready to work and excel in today’s dynamic sports industry. You’ll acquire the skills and knowledge to work within the sports development and coaching sector, with modules covering content relating to various aspects of sports coaching, sports development, management, sports sociology and sports policy. Different people learn in different ways, so we teach students through a blend of lectures, practical sessions, guest speakers, tutorials, workshops, seminars and virtual learning environments. Your coach education lecturers will use active learning principles to demonstrate best practice methods for the application of coaching theory to practice. In your second year, you’ll typically spend one day each week on a mandatory work placement. Working in a well-supported sports related professional environment, you will fine-tune your future career path and significantly increase your employability prospects. Previous students have undertaken their work placements in sports coaching companies and PE departments in local schools, and as match analysis interns at Stoke City FC and Port Vale FC. We’ll also help you develop your employability skills, such as how to communicate with colleagues and clients effectively, time-management and decision-making. These skills are invaluable when seeking a career in the growing and vibrant sports coaching and development industry. We have established relationships with Stoke City FC, Port Vale FC, local and regional schools, coaching companies and organisations across a wide variety of team and individual sports. These provide excellent placement opportunities, enabling you to apply your skills in a real-world setting. Under the watchful eye of our expert coach educators, you’ll develop your practical coaching skills across a variety of sports. These skills are further enhanced by analysing athlete and team performance, using cutting edge Dartfish and ProZone motion and match analysis technologies.
