The Sports Development and Coaching foundation degree is a new innovative degree which has been designed with the assistance of employer organisations in sport across Staffordshire.

The foundation degree will enable work-based learning within school, club and community-based sports provision, and considers how national sports initiatives are set within social, employment and legislative frameworks.
