Course Information

Sports Psychology is the science that examines the individual's psychology and their participation in sport. A person's state of mind can have a dramatic influence on their sporting performance. Looking at the interactions between psychology and sporting performance can give us great insight into tools and techniques to select and coach athletes to victory - whatever that might be for them. 

 Sports psychologists provide two major types of services –

  • Counselling – in areas that affect the athlete. 

  • Develop strategies that enhance performance.

Examples of the type of work they may be involved in

 

  • Helping elite athletes and sports persons to develop strategies to deal with competition and training.

  • Helping coaches and managers in their communication and interpersonal skills

  • Working with health promotion staff to increase the motivation to exercise and maintain the exercise in individuals who are mainly sedentary.

  • Using research to maximise practice and fitness regimes.

  • Advising younger sports persons on how to deal with family, problems, disappointment, homesickness etc.

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
