Description of module content:

This module is designed to augment previous work-based learning and consolidate the learning that has occurred on previous modules. In particular, the modules of Coach Education 1,2,3 and Coaching Children have strong links with work-based learning, as these modules will have provided you with the skills and knowledge that will underpin your future coaching practice. The module aims to support and further your professional development by building on your industry recognised competencies and enhance your understanding and knowledge associated with the application of theory to practice. The approach the module takes to achieve its aims will involve you carrying out a personal needs analysis. As such, this individual approach will align your professional development according to your needs, experiences and aspirations. In doing so, the module offers you the opportunity to critically engage with activities across applied practice or research activities, dependent on your needs.

Examples of appropriate activities could include you undertaking further awards such as the, UEFA A/ UEFA A Elite Youth/ UEFA A Goalkeeping/ Advanced Children’s Licence delivered by Scottish FA (however completion of the award is not guaranteed at the end of the academic year). As part of this module, you will need to select an SFA course based on your needs (relevant to this level of study), agree a set of objectives and then reflect on the progress/success of those objectives.

Further appropriate activities could also include undertaking an applied practice research activity within your area of interest, such as coaching, physiology, and psychology or performance analysis. Again, this will be based upon your personal needs and current environment.

Consistent with the principles underpinning the programme, flexibility and application of theory within a specific context are central principles, and you will be expected to evidence throughout each stage of the module from proposal to report. You will be required to submit a proposal which identifies a work placement or professional qualification that will provide a substantial opportunity to apply your knowledge towards an explicitly outlined goal. This will develop organisational and project planning skills appropriate for this level of module. You must ensure effective time management, evidence collection and processing and appropriate development of competency in relation to your agreed objectives. You will then reflect and report on the experience using an evidence-based approach.
