You will use some of the latest coaching technology as used in professional sport and discuss the complex nature of working effectively and inclusively with different people in different environments, recognising that the coaching sector spans from participation and children’s coaching to elite performance coaching.As part of this course, you will study coaching models and styles, as well as psychosocial aspects such as learning and leadership.
