In recent years, the professionalisation of 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 sport and want a chance to help others achieve their sporting ambitions, a degree in Sport Coaching 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, have strong interpersonal skills and a sense of responsibility, and to have an in-depth knowledge of the coaching structures within sport. This course will help you develop a critical appreciation of the coaching process in a variety of settings as well as allowing you to develop professional skills in your own coaching environment. In 2011, the programme was recognised through its award by Skills Active and Sports Coach UK’s Higher Education Endorsement Scheme. The award of the Higher Education Endorsement not only allows Higher Education Institutions delivering a degree in sports coach education to identify their programmes of study as high quality courses with relevance to the industry today, but it also ensures that students receive a well-founded education in sports coaching. The degree is loosely structured around the assessment strategies identified within the United Kingdom Coaching Certificate and designed to complement the requirements of national governing bodies of sport. LJMU has been selected to host the prestigious International Council for Coaching Excellence Global Coach Conference in 2017, in recognition of the city's sporting prowess and the university's successful sport educational programmes. Plus from September 2017, IM Marsh students will have access to a free strength and conditioning studio onsite. All LJMU students are also entitled to apply for free off-peak membership for Lifestyles Fitness Centres across Liverpool and discounted peak-rate membership is also available so you can keep yourself active alongside your sport studies.
