Working closely with students and in a results-driven way makes sports coaching one of the most rewarding jobs you could have. With a PGCE at master’s level for 14+ in Sports Coaching at the University of Bolton, you’ll be able to teach across a range of settings.
Here are some of the areas you can work after you achieve your PGCE.
Secondary schools and sixth form
For those wanting to work with teenagers and young adults, our one-year PGCE course provides an Initial Teacher Education (ITE) qualification, which is recognised nationally. Once you complete the degree, you have the option to progress towards Qualified Teacher for Learning and Skills (QTLS) for teaching in higher education.
Prison and probation services
In addition to working in schools and colleges, you will also be able to explore sports coaching jobs in the prison and probation services. Working with young offenders and helping to reduce reoffending rates in the UK is an important responsibility, and your work will be both rewarding and meaningful.
If you’re passionate about working with young adults, this degree opens up opportunities to go into the work-based learning sector. You will most likely be working for a private company, a training provider or a work-based learning unit in education, helping to prepare young people for the workplace.
Whatever area you see yourself going into, our PGCE M 14+ in Sports Coaching course will give you the tools to inspire and educate others. Your studies will cover coaching pedagogy and different theories in coaching practice, research projects, and practical placements so you can put concepts into practice.
At Bolton University, our course leaders will provide one-to-one mentorship and in turn, getting to know you and your coaching career goals. To prepare you for a range of sports coaching jobs, we work with you in a supportive way and ensure quality teaching methods are in place. In fact, we’re in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2021 and 2020).
We’ve also been voted No.1 in the North West for student satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019). So there’s nowhere better to begin your professional sports coach journey; welcome to #UniAsItShouldBe at the University of Bolton.
