Course Summary:
Modern coaching is a wide ranging arm of sports science which is relevant at competitive, community and participation levels. Coaching and teaching represent different skill sets from the same spectrum, applied in varying environments and supported by other essential areas of knowledge such as sport psychology, human movement, social impact of sport and the value of applying sports development to lifelong progression. Both sports coaching and physical education operate on the same spectrum, the aim being to encourage, develop and progress others in terms of sporting performance or participation. Coaching can apply at elite performance level but equally at community level where coaches stimulate people who have never taken part in sport and exercise to reshape their lives. When directly involving youngsters coaching works side by side with physical education. Increasingly schools are out-sourcing sports delivery to coaches and likewise more sports practitioners are entering teaching through a coaching pathway. The course offers progressive development of coaching and teaching skills across the full three years, supported by a 6-badminton court size sports hall and extensively equipped sports science labs (see below). Staff have wide ranging coaching knowledge and qualifications up to international and world championship levels.Other modules on the course are equally well supported by experienced staff and facilities. This degree course will prepare you specifically for a career in any aspect of coaching. Likewise it is possible to progress to apply to take a post graduate qualification in teaching or make use of coaching experience to enter teaching via a work-based learning scheme. Previous graduates have gone into careers within team sports, individual coaching, community coaching and P.E. teaching. Quite a number also go on to take MSc qualifications in specialised areas such as sport psychology, strength and conditioning and sport sciences.
Assessment Methods:
You'll be assessed through written and practical exams, practical reports, presentations, class tests and a final research dissertation.

With the campus in the lovely Islington, north London, you are right on the doorstep of so many great things here. The Kings Head Pub and Theatre has some of the best new shows in the city, the Union Chapel has amazing gigs in an incredible atmosphere. Camden Passage is nearby too, with lots of interesting things for your flat. Camden is of course a short walk away, and you can get down into east London on the Overground easily. I had such an amazing time living in London, really the best city in the world!
