For sports people the practical side of course is perfect and the qualification gained will allow me access to university to pursue my career as a PE Teacher.
Elmwood has been offering a range of sports coaching qualifications for twenty years. Our sports coaching students gain an excellent grounding in practical coaching activities as well as an in-depth knowledge of the theory aspects of sport coaching.
Lecturers within the sports department have extensive experience of working with sports-related organisations including the SRU and SFA. They also continue to participate competively in a range of sports.
Students have the opportunity to work in local primary schools to develop their coaching skills, where they have the opportunity to design and deliver bespoke coaching sessions.
Each year many of our students progress to study sports-related degrees, while others find employment in the leisure and recreation sector.
