We offer the opportunities for students to undertake industry lead vocational qualifications to support their Level 3 programme. These can be studied as an additional course alongside their A Levels and BTECs to enhance their employability opportunities as well as their knowledge and skills in coaching and fitness.
These courses qualify students to work independently within a professional environment such as any fitness and sports coaching organisation. In the past students have gained employment directly from studying these courses and have gained paid work at variety of organisations including, David Lloyd gym, Freedom Leisure, The Gym group. They have also delivered their own sports coaching sessions for local school providers and coaching organisations, such as the RMA.
This course is aimed at any students wishing to develop their leadership and sports coaching skills to support the growing numbers of sports leaders who make sport such a vibrant part of community life today.
Students will learn how to plan and lead activity sessions and run sports events. They will work with children of different ages and abilities and support community sport activities. The course is a mixture of theory and practical activity that includes sports leading in the college environment, coaching in a range of local schools and volunteering at community clubs. This course links perfectly to voluntary work and participation in sport outside of college.
