In partnership with The University of South Wales, our two-year foundation degree offers students the opportunity to gain valuable coaching experience and qualifications. After the two-year degree, students have the option to progress their Foundation Degree into a BSc (Hons) degree.
The work done by The University of South Wales football coaching specialists has recently been recognised with a National Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) from the Higher Education Academy (HEA). The degree has been recognised for the educational pathways it creates, “The delivery model, combining extensive mentorship with high-quality blended learning delivered by a team of experts in their own subject areas – be it media, football, teaching and learning, or delivery of vocational awards – is the feature that makes the programme so successful” Mr Probert (HEA).
The degree has also been commended for the way it helps out in local communities, “The flexible approach to learning, enabling students to access HE through local networks, also means that their local communities benefit from the delivery of multi-sport programmes – in 2016/17 students provided in excess of 30,000 voluntary hours.“
