The Sport (Coaching and Development) Level 3 course is endorsed by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA). It will provide the opportunity to develop practical vocational skills, knowledge and understanding for work and coaching in the expanding area of leisure and recreation. A variety of learning styles are developed. These include formal class learning, group work, presentation and individual tutorials relating to the assessment programme. Learner’s will be required to secure a coaching placement in their second year of studying, in order to gain experience in a real-life coaching setting and meet the requirements of the qualification.
Learners initially enrol on the course as a one-year programme with the option to leave after successfully completing the first year. On completion of Year 1 students will normally progress onto Year 2. You will also engage in activities to develop your English, maths and employability skills.
