Immersing you in performance analysis, programming, and strength and conditioning, this degree equips you with the knowledge and skills to implement and manage contemporary sports coaching practices in local, national and international settings. Endorsed against the professional standards of CIMSPA, the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity, the programme offers a student-centred experience that combines academic studies with applied work experience in real-world settings. Developing skills in enterprise and entrepreneurship, you will choose from a range of contemporary and career-focused pathways that enable you to specialise in areas such as coaching community and performance sport, sports coaching in education, and coaching with children, young people and adults. The programme will appeal whether you wish to work in community or professional sports coaching, or education, across a range of audiences. You will graduate with a skillset that makes you highly employable, both within and outside the sports industry, working in roles where you can make a real difference to people’s lives.

Assessments are both individual and team-based and enable you to develop your presentation skills through applied sports coaching tasks, including those undertaken in the real world and with industry partners. These tasks include the writing of essays and individual reports, coaching portfolios and practical assessments. There will be critical appraisals of learning strategies, evaluations of coaching practices, preparation of poster presentations, the planning and delivery of practical sessions, developing portfolios of evidence linked to professional standards, and undertaking a piece of original independent research.
