We value coach education and aim to provide opportunities for our students to allow them to enhance their future job prospects.
By completing additional training alongside your University studies you will be gaining valuable skills as well as choosing to invest in your future.
If you decide to train to become a Sports Coach you will be helping others work towards achieving their full potential, as coaching provides many benefits to the participants but as a coach it can also provide you with many benefits too. Many skills can be developed through training and recognised qualifications.
If you are new to sports coaching, there are a number of different qualifications that are available to you but you will firstly need to gain a Level 1 coaching qualification.
After achieving a Level 1 award you will be qualified to assist more-qualified coaches and deliver aspects of a coaching session whilst working with supervision. Most Level 1 courses are made up of blended learning combining theory with coaching practice.
Merseyside Sport has information relating to courses and workshops being delivered around Merseyside.
If you have a particular sport in mind that you would like to become qualified in, you should take a look at the National Governing Body website for your sport and find out what courses they currently have available.
