About this course:

Have you got what it takes to maximise the performance of athletes and conduct sport performance analysis? You will lead clients through physical activity in a gym environment and will use STATS software to analyse activities, leading to two extra qualifications. The skills gained from these qualifications have allowed previous students to gain employment with OPTA, analysing professional competitions such as the Premier League.

You will develop your sports knowledge and gain vital experience of working with teams and individuals to improve their fitness levels and sports performance. Additionally, you will develop your knowledge of the health benefits of regular exercise and use sports performance analysis to identify areas for improvement. You will also learn how to plan and deliver safe practical sessions.

As you strengthen your specialist sports skills and academic knowledge, you’ll support your studies by leveraging our fantastic industry links to complete placements and work experience within schools, communities and sports teams. You will learn about different aspects of training and contexts of sport, while gaining leadership opportunities during our residential trip.
