Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
This module will be taught through a series of online lectures (LOs 1&2), tutorials (LOs 1&2), and field based practicals (LOs 2&3) which develop theory into practice. Coursework develops coaching theory demonstrated with practical delivery of a coaching session (LOs 2&3). A coaching observation allows the student to reflect on their own coaching abilities by assessing another’s ability relating this to coaching theory & best practice (LOs 1&2)

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
Experience of the practical delivery of a coaching session will assist students seeking employment in the coaching & teaching industries. A Governing Body award will be undertaken to allow students to be qualified in delivery of the voluntary coaching hours. They will then deliver 8 volunteer coaching hours in a supervised capacity. Students will be required to deliver a series of coaching sessions and refine their coaching skills through feedback and self-reflection. Lesson planning and session content & structure will allow students to familiarise themselves with required skills for industry. The assessment process includes a critical self-analysis in which students will recognise their own areas of success and required improvement.



Assessment (formative and summative)
A summative practical assessment of 8 volunteer coaching hours will be undertaken from weeks 3 to 12. Each student is required to produce a lesson plan and then evaluate their session delivery using supervisor and client feedback through a self-reflective process. Participation, observation and analysis of the practical coaching classes by the peer group is used to enhance the learning experience. Feedback given to other students during this assessment is part of the formative assessment process and will help students prepare for the observation. A critical and analytical assessment observation will be undertaken by the student of an
