The course and university experience, coupled with an enhanced employer engagement, provides the necessary theoretical underpinning and practical competencies for you to gain employment nationally and internationally in a wide range of roles within a sports club/organisation and the wider industry. As coaches and sportspeople of the future, you will develop specific coach related capabilities and skills through experiential learning providing you with a multidisciplinary perspective of sport and performance with areas such as sports development, biomechanics, physiology, strength and conditioning built in. You will have the opportunity to undertake training and professional development relevant to the organisation that provides the enhanced employer engagement elements of the course.
