About this programme
The remit of the Sports Coach programme is to equip apprentices with the skills to use extensive technical and tactical sports knowledge. They’ll use this knowledge to design and deliver coaching programmes that engage, motivate and evolve participants’ skills, delivery and performance. It’s the role of the sports coach to take engagement in sport and physical activity to the next level. This occupation is often found in the sport and physical activity sector and in high-performance, community and school environments.
Upon completion of the programme they’ll be equipped to provide meaningful and high-quality learning, development and performance experiences. They’ll actively support the achievement of medals in talent, involvement in national and international competition, enrich performance in local competitions, increase participation, raise educational standards, and enhance wellbeing while driving social change.
Sports Coaches will also be armed with the relevant skills to measure the impact of their coaching strategies through analysis of participant performance data and organisational perception. This is then benchmarked against local, national and international trends relevant to the environment in which they are coaching.
Apprentices who complete this apprenticeship will be eligible to apply for membership with CIMSPA..
