This course offers current practitioners the opportunity to develop their conceptual and theoretical understanding in the field of sports coaching science; practical skills in a range of scientific disciplines are further developed in order to enhance the coaching process; an emphasis implicit within the course is on the interrelationship between the coach performer and sport scientist; the mutual exchange of knowledge and experience that exists with relevant partnerships within the coaching process will be considered; the focus throughout the course requires students to critically reflect upon contemporary principles and practices in sports coaching; upon completion of the course students should have developed a critical reflective practitioner role with an in depth understanding of sports coaching principles and processes; the professional placement enables the student to demonstrate their professional sports coaching competencies through continuing professional development activities; the advanced independent study module provides opportunities for students to negotiate a suitable project that meets the intended learning outcomes of the module in their area of sports coaching interest.
