Got what it takes to join the next generation of Sports Coaches?

‘Good players need talent, but they also need good coaches.’

Sports coaching and education is a great way to express your passion for sport, whilst making a difference within your community.

Following BBC Sport’s checklist, highlighting just some characteristics of a good coach, we began exploring exactly what it takes to join the next generation of professional sports coaches and educators.

Gain a competitive advantage instead of standing on the sidelines

Here at SCL, we know that it is no longer enough to simply have a passion for sport. While it’s impossible to be a coach in any sport unless you’re genuinely passionate about what you’re coaching, the industry is becoming increasingly competitive and demanding.

Aside from the knowledge and skill embedded into the DNA of any greats sports coach, employers today are seeking a mix of qualifications, skill and experience.

The Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching and Physical Education

Bridging the gap between what the education system has previously delivered and what the industry today requires, this new and employer-led Foundation Degree provides an exciting platform for your career.

Delivered in partnership with De Montfort University, the Foundation Degree allows you to practice your question of sport as you gain relevant, industry-recognised qualifications, whilst building an impressive portfolio of work experience and professional practice.

The Foundation Degree features:

  • Employer-led syllabus
  • Excellent opportunities for progression
  • Guaranteed work placements with SCL
  • Great facilities & great location
