This course has been especially designed to equip you with the necessary experience and skills to enter a variety of sports careers. You will learn about and prepare for work in many different areas within sport including the sport development industry, national sports organisations (such as Sport England, Sporting Equals and UK Sport), sport governing bodies, local country sports partnerships (such as the Black Country Consortium), schools and colleges, research centres and academic institutions.
One of the key features of the course is the wide range of real world assessments. You get to plan, organise and deliver a sports event gaining valuable real world industry experience. You will also evaluate sports initiatives, write funding bids, prepare practical sessions for different populations (including youth, disabled, older people, obese people), learn how to research different populations and learn about issues relating to working in elite level sport.
Module content and assessments are linked to the work of local and national sports organisations. We have partnerships with a number of local colleges and you will get the opportunity to plan and deliver practical sessions to real students in both lectures and other outreach events delivered by the University such as SportFest and This Girl Will. You will have the opportunity to work with a range of organisations including Street Games, Youth Zone and the West Midlands Police Community partnerships team (see more in ‘What happens on the course?’).
