Sports Studies

Our sports studies courses prepare you for careers in sports coaching, the fitness industry, sports development, event organisation, or sport as a business. TCAT has an impressive track record of nurturing young stars into top-level professional sport and in many instances, international recognition too.

If you’re interested in a career in the Sports industry, few colleges in the region can compete with the facilities and expertise offered by TCAT. Studying sport and fitness can take you in many different directions. You can play, coach, or lecture across a wide range of disciplines once you are armed with one of our qualifications.

You get the chance to involve yourself in practical coaching situations, often working with local schools and clubs. On this course you will gain a valuable insight into coaching and training techniques used by top-level sports experts, as well as a better understanding of the importance of nutrition and exercise.

TCAT also offers a range of girls-only sports courses, launched in response to a national campaign to halt a decline in the number of females signing up for sport-related programmes – and has a brand new link-up with Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.

Did you know? Students have access to TCAT’s Sports Academy in Rugby, Football, Basketball and Netball, as well as use of its state-of-the-art indoor Sports Dome and floodlit 3G pitches.
