Sport, coaching and fitness is a fast changing, rapidly growing sector, with the increasing trend in promoting an active and healthy lifestyle in the media. There are many different career opportunities open to you right across the public, private and voluntary sectors. Our courses are renowned in the industry, with the distinct advantage of the location of our campuses right on the edge of the Peak District. Our outdoor courses based at our Oaklands Manor outdoor pursuits centre in Buxton, boast 58 acres of outdoor activity facilities, including climbing walls, low rope courses and a caving course.

You will learn the theory around sport and fitness, such as the principles of anatomy and physiology in the classroom as well as the many physical assignments. There will also be the opportunity for work related placements and visits to professional football clubs, physiotherapy departments and sport development centres where possible.
