This course is delivered online, with a compulsory residential study week in June for each year, in Cambridge, UK.
The full Bachelor degree course will take three years to complete.
The course provides a good deal of practical application and so some of your learning will take place during normal work duties (if you are already coaching) or in the club context if you are a player. However, you will also need to commit private time for studying. On average, you can expect to study for around 7-10 hours per week. This will include a variety of activities including analysing training sessions, blogging, participating in online forums, researching and writing reports, and much of it can be achieved as you coach your team.
You will be assessed during each module. The assessment has been designed to utilise skills you can use in coaching and the wider world of work and therefore will include a mixture of video uploads, blog writing, discussion boards, written assignments, presentations and project work.
Intermediate awards can be achieved as follows: Certificate of Higher Education - 120 credits; Diploma of Higher Education - 240 credits; BSc (Ordinary) - 300 credits.
The best coaches are the ones that continue to update their skills
If you're a player: this course provides you with an exceptional opportunity to learn a wide range of transferable and highly practical skills while you train on the pitch, preparing you for a career in coaching in the future.
If you're a coach: this qualification builds on your existing badges and coaching experience by reinforcing the theories and concepts behind the practices you have developed so far, giving breadth to your knowledge and coaching techniques and further enhancing your personal coaching style and career success.
We'll assess you in a number of ways, including patchwork texts (smaller pieces of work, or 'patches' that are built up into a whole), presentations, portfolios and written assessments.
