Sports Coaching at Nescot
The Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching is delivered jointly with Kingston University (please apply via the Kingston University profile on UCAS).
This course offers a balanced theoretical and applied grounding in sports coaching. You will gain a knowledge of the biomechanical analysis of human movement in sporting activity and how nutrition and psychology can improve sporting performance. You will also gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of the industry-standard analysis tools used to aid coaching development of athletes and teams. You’ll be working with the latest equipment and graduate with the potential for a wide range of careers and further study options.
A coaching placement in the second year will equip you with the skills required to be an effective practitioner in the sports coaching field. Hence, you will learn the fundamental theories of sport coaching, practical competencies and then how to apply your academic knowledge.
Although the course will not provide professional coaching qualifications, it provides the scientific knowledge to achieve qualification up to United Kingdom Coaching Certificate (UKCC) Level 3 or 4. There is also the opportunity of spending a further year completing a BSc (Hons) Sport Science (Coaching), after successfully completing a bridging course at Kingston.
