This one year programme is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge for you to pursue a career in sports coaching and sports development.

This course requires an up-to-date DBS check to be in place, which can only be applied for through the college. Fees for the DBS check are set by the government and are payable to the college.

For Home and EU students, a loan from the Student Loans Company is available to support learners with fees if applied for. These fees cover the overall costs of the course, including sports kits, guest speakers, day trips and additional UKCC Level 1 and Level 2 coaching courses that may be run throughout the year.

You will be expected to take part in practical sport and coaching activities regularly throughout the course. You will be expected to gain coaching and sports development experience through the coaching and organisation of some of the sports teams within the College. In addition to this, work experience placements will be offered with local employers, giving you valuable access to experienced practitioners of sports coaching and sports development as well as an opportunity to develop your own skills and knowledge.

During your time on the course you will have the chance to attend extra residential activities. These may include:
• Football (male and female)
• Racket sports
• Ski/snowboarding
• Basketball
• Netball
• Volunteering Abroad (Morocco/Thailand)

There is an extra cost for these activities.

This is classed as a full-time course – on successful completion of this course, you will gain a BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma. Home & EU students are eligible to apply for a full-time loan from Student Finance England.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
