Employment with TSC/Schools – For students who want to immediately pursue a career in sports coaching there may be the opportunity of employment with TSC after they finish their studies. They may also be able to gain employment within schools due to their CV and experience.
University – For those who are applying tor university they will be able to boast on their CV about the amount of voluntary hours they have performed as well as the coaching qualifications they have gained. This would hopefully give them an advantage over other applicants.
Apprenticeships/traineeships – For students who are looking to go into an apprenticeship/traineeship, they should have a great chance due to their boosted CV. They will have recognised qualifications as well as showing their history of volunteering and experience in coaching.
Life skills – It goes without saying that this programme will help develop a variety of life skills that are needed for students to succeed in their future. They will have to take huge responsibility for themselves as well as for others in their care. Adding the extra programme on top of their studies will be demanding on their time, which they will need to manage. As well as this working with children is not always an easy task, so they will develop communication skills that will help them in the future.
