Whether you’re striving to be the Assistant Coach to your local basketball team or the Head Coach on a Premier League football team, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to pursue your career in coaching.
If you’ve ever played for a local club, you know what a huge impact a coach can have on their team.

This course will give you the confidence to coach young stars.
Coach Educators and Developers
Loving a sport and loving coaching are two separate passions for established coaches. Once you’ve won a few leagues, seen your first most valuable player make it big and experienced a few curve balls in your career, you’ll know that the lessons you’ve learned need to be passed on to younger coaches looking to inspire their teams.
If this sort of mentoring seems like an aspiration for your future, near or far, the MSc in International Sport Coaching by Liverpool John Moores University offered in conjunction with Learning Works, is the perfect sport postgraduate for you.
Researchers and Lecturers of Coaching
Your knowledge and expertise in the art of coaching will serve as inspiration and motivation to the less experienced coaches under your wing. Once the roles of educator or developer have satisfied your passion for improving coaching techniques and up-dating practices, your role as a Researcher or Lecturer of Coaching can take over as your passion in sport.
Through researching and lecturing, you will be able to set standards and innovate the future of sports with insight through your experience as a successful coach as well as a broad knowledge gained through your Masters Degree in Sport Coaching.
