The Professional Practice in Sport Coaching MSc provides a basis for career development into, or through, the sport coaching programme. There is particular emphasis on developing a critical understanding of sport coaching through the examination of underpinning theories, models, concepts and research skills pertinent to coaching practice and overall management of the coaching process. Students will, through the taught programme, assess and critique the impact of current coaching models and systems utilised in the development of coaching expertise. In addition students will develop knowledge of high performance coaching and critique the application of sport science principles to this context.
More specifically the programme will promote application and critical evaluation of vocationally relevant concepts to the work place and the sports coaching role through a work-based learning approach. This programme is guided by key professional competencies outlined in the UK Coaching Certificate and coupled with the theoretical underpinnings is contemporary and innovative in design.
