NPA Sports Development (SCQF L6)

Our NPA Sports Development course provides candidates with unique opportunities to develop their confidence and to promote leadership and responsibility in the wider community and working world. This course is designed to allow progression to HNC/HND programmes such as Sports Coaching with Sports Development and Sport Recreation Management. The course consists of 2 units covering eight outcomes, a 500 word report, a group presentation and a 1000 word essay in order to obtain the SCQF Level 6 SQA award. Candidates will be timetabled for 4 practical sessions where specialist coaches deliver inputs on a variety of activities to provide pupils with the knowledge, content and experience to lead small teaching episodes for primary and lower school pupils from our catchment schools. The remaining two periods are for the theoretical side of the course in order to obtain the qualification. Above all, this course provides candidates a platform to discover their identity as a senior student and allow them to explore their capabilities on an individual basis as well as in a group setting, providing them with the necessary skills to apply in a workplace environment on their way to a positive destination.
