Building on the core coaching and physical education knowledge from your foundation degree or HND, this course encourages you to advance your understanding and application of classroom activities, methods of assessment, and use of technology for teaching purposes, all in preparation for a career as a coach or teacher within the sports sector.
With this programme, you’ll deepen your understanding of sports coaching and PE, while using technology to enhance your learning. You’ll undertake industry simulations and gain experience with our excellent coaching links to develop your teaching practices. Your final project will allow you to specialise, partner with schools or clubs, and prepare for a PGCE.
In preparation for your career in the fast-paced sports industry, you’ll have plenty of coaching work opportunities with local sports organisations. You will also have the opportunity to undertake a three-week work placement in Örebro, Sweden or Vierumäki, Finland.
