This course is for you if you have an interest in, or wish to develop, valuable skills in the areas of football coaching and playing football. This course will run over one year.
We anticipate that the applicants will have a strong interest in football and will currently be involved in either playing or coaching.
The NPA in Sport and Fitness provides the basic knowledge and skills in the theoretical and practical elements of football.
As the course is focused on football there will be a high level of practical both playing and coaching. The sessions will be led by fully qualified football coaches and delivered in partnership with Ayr United Football Academy and Kilmarnock Football Club.
SQA Course Units:
A place on the course will be subject to a practical interview where pupils will need to demonstrate aptitude in football, a desire to learn new skills and show a commitment to consistent attendance.
Assessment across the units will be a mixture of theory and practical and will test knowledge and understanding gained during class time.
This course may provide candidates with an opportunity for progression to a range of relevant NC courses.
‘I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with professional coaches to improve my ability, one of the real highlights was working at the SFA coaching course where we worked with some of the best coaches in the country.’
