Disability Sport Coaching and Development (Foundation Degree)

LJMU is a recognised leader in the field of Sport Development and this foundation degree is a unique course offered in partnership with Greenbank College, a leading UK disability sport organisation. All teaching and learning activities are delivered at Greenbank College, which is located close to Sefton Park, not at LJMU. In recent years, the professionalisation and development of disability sport coaching has become a key component of government sport strategy. Coaching as a profession requires knowledge of what and how to coach and this degree will encourage you to apply theory to practice to enhance coaching performance. If you are passionate about disability sport and want a chance to help others achieve their sporting ambitions, a foundation degree in Disability Sport Coaching and Development could be the route for you. Current demand for appropriately qualified coaches is high across a variety of settings (coaching children; participants and athletes). To be a successful coach, you need to be self-confident with strong interpersonal skills and a sense of responsibility. You also need to have an in-depth knowledge of the coaching structures within sport.
