Course summary

The Level 4 units lay the foundations of learning by providing a specialised introduction to coaching in the UK landscape and different coaching functions. This develops and strengthens core skills while preparing the student for Level 5 or to enter employment with the qualities necessary for job roles that require some personal responsibility. Students will gain a wide range of coaching knowledge linked to practical skills gained through research, independent study, directed study and workplace scenarios. Students are involved in vocational activities that help them to develop behaviours (the attitudes and approaches required for a competence) and transferable skills. Transferable skills are those such as communication, teamwork, research and analysis, which are highly valued in higher education and the workplace. By the end of Level 4, students will have sound knowledge of the concepts of coaching in the UK. They will be competent in a range of subject-specific skills as well as general skills and qualities relevant to key areas in Sport and Exercise Science. Graduates successfully completing the Higher National Certificate will be able to demonstrate a sound knowledge of the basic concepts of Sport & Exercise Science. They will be able to communicate accurately and appropriately and they will have the qualities needed for employment that requires some degree of personal responsibility. They will have developed a range of transferable skills to ensure effective team working, independent initiatives, organisational competence and problem-solving strategies. They will be adaptable and flexible in their approach to Sport & Exercise Science, show resilience under pressure, and meet challenging targets within a given resource.
