Sports Coaching Additional Qualifications This qualification is endorsed by the Chartered Institute for the management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA). As such, over the course of the 2-year programme, additional coaching qualifications will also be gained to give you a fantastic opportunity to gain employment in the coaching industry. How do the Sports Academies work alongside this course? Learners are able to access Sports Academies whilst studying at SGS College on a full-time course. Your academic studies and academy training work as a partnership, and as such, are never timetabled at the same time. This allows you to continue your development within your selected sporting discipline, whilst studying in an academic area that interests you.
For example, a learner may have lectures on a Monday morning and then Academy training at WISE on a Monday afternoon.
How will I know how I am doing?
We will assess this qualification through 100% coursework. The assessment methods we will use include written assignments, presentations, discussions and practical assessment of skills, such as coaching and leading.
What do I need to join?
Applicants will require three GCSE’s at grade 4, which must include a grade 4 in either English or maths.
As previously discussed, the applicant will then retake a GCSE qualification in either English or maths alongside their BTEC, to give them an opportunity to achieve a 4 grade in the subject.
Maths & English
English and maths qualifications will be a part of this course package. Learners will have English or maths lectures embedded into their timetable to support their academic development over the programme’s duration.

Events Manager - £17,000 to £80,000 depending upon experience
Groundsperson - £17,000 to £48,000 depending upon experience
