About the course
Sport and physical activity is fun, good for us and can change lives. It is a huge global industry that is set to grow further as governments increasingly recognise the role of sport in supporting health and wellbeing and creating vibrant communities.
To deliver this, the sector needs an innovative and dynamic workforce. This course will support you as a current or future leader to develop skills in the management and development of Sport and Physical Activity.
You will have the opportunity to review and analyse examples of best practice, develop sustainable sport participation programmes and research a Sport and Physical Activity topic area of your choice.
How will I be assessed?
You will be required to undertake a variety of assessment approaches that vary depending upon the learning outcomes of the units delivered. The range of assessment styles includes the following 1. Written Reports and Essays 2. Verbal Presentations 3. Online Reflective Journals 4. Case Studies 5. Phase Tests 6. Applied assessments relating to managing the design, planning, delivery of a sport and physical activity intervention. Assessment activities will be based on tasks that provide the opportunity to demonstrate both vocational skills and subject knowledge. As you progress through the units, the assessment criteria will emphasise the expectation that you demonstrate theory driven understanding of sport and physical activity management issues and practices. This is reflective of the higher levels of cognition required to study at Masters Level. All assessments are graded individually, although in many instances you will be required to work collaboratively with your peers in order to examine a wide variety of sport and physical activity management issues and their practical implications. This is reflective of the type of work undertaken in the sport and physical activity sector.
