The need to adopt a more systematic and professional approach to coaching is now widely acknowledged. Opportunities for paid employment in the field of sports coaching are rapidly increasing with clubs, governing bodies and statutory agencies all prepared to invest in the recruitment and development of young people and the nurturing of elite performers. The industry has become increasingly aware of the need to recognise practical sports coaching skills and experience – especially where these can be linked to academic achievement and qualifications - and this honours top up enables individuals to access a higher education programme which supports and develops this combination of practical experience and academic learning.

This honours top up focuses on understanding the nature of sports coaching within various sub-sectors of the sports and leisure industry. Students will gain an understanding of the many different types of work environment that they will progress into ranging from working as a self-employed coach to the related fields of sports development and sports/physical education. The course will draw on several disciplines including; sports science. socio-historical studies and business management. Students will be equipped with the knowledge, understanding and practical skills to achieve successful employment or progression onto post graduate study.

This degree programme will provide a route for progression as a top-up from Easton College's current Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching (and similar Foundation Degree programmes elsewhere). The programme will also be aimed at those currently working in sports coaching, and others who wish to combine study with structured employment in the sector, allowing them to gain relevant experience, to apply their experience to their academic studies and to continue to earn a salary.
