Qualifications

Overview

Sport Coaching graduates are motivated and passionate leaders who inspire others and are committed to success. They are equipped with key skills employers are looking for, not just in sport, recreation or athlete development, but in everything from people development and motivation in business environments, to events and corporate management.

Sport Coaching students develop a valuable set of transferable skills including motivation and teaching skills, awareness of holistic health principles and well-being, interpretive and analytical skills, leadership and people management skills, and problem solving skills.

A degree in Sport Coaching can also provide a recognised pathway to teaching, in particular physical education and health teaching, when combined with a graduate teaching qualification. For advice on how to achieve this consult with a liaison officer or a College of Education, Health and Human Development student advisor.
