Additionally, those wishing to become fully qualified sports coaches will need to complete an additional United Kingdom Coaching Certificate (UKCC) provided by a National Governing Body (NGB) of sport . Though this degree programme will not incorporate the UKCC, a number of opportunities to complete such additional qualifications will be offered throughout the programme.
