Sport, Coaching & Physical Education is an exciting, multi-disciplinary degree which equips you with the vocational, professional and academic knowledge and experience required for those with aspirations for a successful career in coaching, teaching, sports development or the health and fitness industry. This degree requires your practical involvement in sport and physical activity in order to systematically challenge and critique the theoretical aspects of Sport, Coaching & Physical Education. Sports coaches and physical educators have the opportunity to impact significantly on the lives of those they are supporting and this requires thoughtful, innovative and informed practitioners which this degree aims to develop. A key feature of the course is its integration of applied professional practice with theory. You will examine academic subjects and develop your critical skills in a variety of practical settings. This may include working alongside professional coaches in elite settings or examining issues linked to sport and physical education provision in schools. Our links with local sports partnerships, governing bodies, professional sports clubs and Sports Coach UK provide exciting work placement and career opportunities. Our staff are also involved in exciting research projects, developing knowledge and professional links that students can access. You will study a range of modules which focus on the key aspects of sport, coaching and physical education. In your first year, the initial learning focus requires you to demonstrate your written, practical performance and presentation skills in all modules. It provides an introduction to analysis which will feature more heavily in assessments at the next level. Year two will see you have greater opportunities for choice and specialisation, directly reflected in the variety and relevance of assessment types offered. The abilities to compare, contrast, reflect and relate concepts are evaluated. These are assessed through more challenging tasks, more required elements for each module, and greater connectivity between academic, performance coaching and professional insights. In your final year, you will need to demonstrate your ability to function individually and in group and research settings. You will be given all-important opportunities to cope with working under supervised conditions. This develops independence and the ability to think more critically.
