Teaching & Assessment

Oral Assessment

The student will be presented with a hypothetical applied football coaching scenario with supporting material.

The scenario will highlight the following:

  • The topic of the session
  • The age and number of players involved
  • The level of performance 
  • The experience of the coach (current qualifications etc.)

The student will then utilise contemporary research and theory to discuss how they would act as a mentor within the scenario, drawing upon concepts and principles discussed within the module


During the course, the students will apply the theoretical practice within their own environment. The essay will describe the student’s mentoring practical experience, linking the theory to their own practice and highlighting their own strengths and areas of development for future practical application.
