Learners need to purchase a kit. The cost of this will be finalised at the start of the course but is expected to be in the region of £100. An additional cost of £60 is to be paid for the year-end celebration meal and yearly gym membership. There may be additional costs incurred for selected trips or visits. There is no expectation that riders will have their own bikes. However, they are welcome to use them if they do. Riders are advised to provide their own helmets and shoes - although, again, these can be provided. For applicants from outside the region or who travel over distance, the College has residential accommodation if required. What can I do after this course? On successful completion of the course, learners may wish to progress to the Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching or seek employment within the sport and leisure sector.
