This module builds on prior learning and offers students the opportunity for further development of their skills, knowledge and understanding through conducting an independent research project. The project is regarded as an important exercise for developing students’ abilities to formulate appropriate research design and procedures, to collect and present in an appropriate and meaningful way, to conduct a critical analysis of relevant literature, and to demonstrate their understanding and application of theoretical principles. The research focus must be specific to their chosen degree.
This module offers students the opportunity to build on their level 5 work placement through the more developed application of a negotiated work-based research project. Students will agree with their placement tutor and workplace mentor a brief for a project which addresses a need within the organisation. Learners should complete a minimum of 100 hours in the work place. It is in the spirit of this module that wherever possible, the focus will be on social or community / sustainable development.
This module takes a holistic, inter-disciplinary approach to understanding how young people and athletes can be developed in and through sport and Physical Education. Incorporating concepts from sport pedagogy, psychology and talent development literatures, students will be encouraged to understand youth and athletic development from holistic point of view, and across the participation-performance spectrum.
This module will require students – as a group - to conceive, plan, implement and evaluate a sports event. Responding to the needs of the sports, charity and/ or community sector, students will oversee all aspects of the sport event management process, allowing them to develop the practical, work-based competencies required for graduate level positions in the sports industry. The structure, function and operation of sports events in the United Kingdom will be critically analysed, enabling students to respond to the current UK sport development and policy context in innovative and enterprising ways. The module will include students being guided through the completion of relevant risk assessment and health and safety protocols for their events.
This module will encourage students’ to deepen their understanding of social and cultural theory through a critical engagement with a variety of contemporary social phenomena and their relationship to sport at a local, national and/ or international level. The module will also encourage students to consider how their own academic and/ or vocational interests (e.g. social justice, environmental concerns, internationalisation etc.) might be enhanced by the application of a sociological lens.
This module explores the application of psychological profiling and intervention techniques in a variety of sporting situations. It seeks to develop a critical and evidence based approach in the selection of specific strategies for individuals and groups. It further seeks to provide a basis for appraising and critically evaluating the impact of any intervention strategies employed with reference to their effectiveness, appropriateness, and ethical use.
This module explores physical activity as a health-related behaviour across the lifespan, starting with children. It considers classic studies and recent research evidence to critically investigate the associations between physical (in)activity, other health-related behaviours, and fitness and health. The module will look at physical activity behaviour from a range of perspectives, including the social and built environment and public health perspectives. The module will specifically consider health-related concerns such as the global rise in obesity and non-communicable diseases (including Type II Diabetes Mellitus). The module also aims to further develop understanding and competencies in the measurement of physical activity and body composition. Relevant risk assessment and health and safety protocols will be adhered to within the human performance laboratory.
