Helping people achieve their potential is one of the most satisfying parts of being a sports coach. This degree is shaped by an established model of coaching adopted by the Football Association and other leading national and international governing bodies. You will develop your key coaching skills by learning to understand your participants and their sport, and how to plan, deliver and review both short and long-term training programmes. More than half the course delivery and assessment will be practical in nature, and you will have many opportunities to apply ideas from the course during organised placements. **RESIDENTIALS** During your first year you will have the opportunity to take part in a residential experience. This will be a chance to meet new friends and take part in a number of challenges to develop your problem solving and team working skills. Activities can include rock climbing, gorge scrambling, mountaineering, walking, canoeing and kayaking.
