By its very nature, this course is ‘hands on’ in its approach and will provide you with a solid understanding in theory, before training you in the practical elements of working in the industry.
This course has been designed to prepare you for the workforce and is complimented by a range of practical/ vocationally oriented sessions. Your assessments will vary from unit to unit, but they are all internally assessed via coursework. You will gain an in-depth theoretical understanding of Anatomy & Physiology and study more practical units such as Sports Coaching and Leadership which are assessed through your ability to plan and lead coaching sessions.
You will also study Sports Massage, which, together with the Sports Injuries unit, is fantastic for progression into careers such as Sports Therapy or rehab.
