The Magic Academy have been instrumental in helping design content and will be a significant partner on your journey. This will be alongside a number of other external collaborations and of course the opportunity to be embedded in our nationally recognised SGS Sport Bristol Academy working with potential stars of the future. The Fast-Track degree is achieved in a condensed two year program, allowing you to enter the industry earlier and with significant financial savings. The applied focus will see you working with elite and grassroots athletes as part of your journey, utilising the knowledge gained from interactive lectures, workshops and seminars both in an online and face to face format.
Assessments will again focus on your applied knowledge with portfolios and real industry-based projects forming a significant part of how you can showcase your understanding. Coaching is not a repetition of known information, it is a journey that is organic and evolves around you, our experienced coaches are experts at guiding you along this pathway and into the workplace. Employers are looking for this combined knowledge of understanding, application and experience. Our students have gone on to set up their own businesses; coaching at professional clubs and community projects; they are also working as lecturers and teachers from primary schools to universities. They all cite the transferable skills and experiences gained at SGS as being key to their success.
