Students Coach at Local School Sport Festival
Sport & Public Services students at Lancaster & Morecambe College recently coached and supported primary school children at the Lancaster, Morecambe & Heysham Primary Schools Sport Festival at Salt Ayre Leisure Centre.
The festival was organised in conjunction with Steve Jamieson from Lancashire Schools Sports Partnership. LMC Sport has worked on many occasions with Steve and the partnership to provide coaching opportunities for their Sport & Public Services students.
The students managed and coached a vast array of competitive games that the children participated in at the festival.
Steve Jamieson from Lancashire Schools Sports Partnership said ‘the LMC students supported the event superbly and displayed excellent organisational skills which will contribute greatly to their future career development in coaching and event management’.
LMC Sport Tutor Jayne Roper said ‘the event is a great way for students to experience the organisation and running of a large event. It provides the students with essential real life opportunities to develop their Employability Skills in a sports event setting to enhance their future career aspirations’.
Students also have the opportunity to gain essential work experience and Employability Skills in a variety of ways at LMC to support their career progression pathways. These opportunities include European Visits to Lanzarote for warm weather training & coaching, France for skiing and snowboard coaching and Holland for coaching and cultural exchanges.
Students also have the opportunity to gain their Football Association Level 1 Coaching in Football qualification with Lancashire FA. They use their qualification to coach sessions for school children in the local community, achieve employment in the LMC Community Sports Centre & work in a range of sports leisure centres.
Sports students also have the opportunity to participate in a range of sports sessions including tag rugby, lacrosse & cricket sessions. These are delivered by our partnerships with Steven Jamieson from Lancashire Schools Sports Partnership, Steve Pemberton, the Lancaster Cricket Development Officer & Mike Orme for Lacrosse coaching.
Sport students can study on a range of courses at LMC which are matched to their academic ability and career pathways. These include Level 1 in Sport, NCFE Level 2 & Level 3 in Sport, BTEC Level 3 Diplomas in Sport and Sports Science, BTEC HND Level 4/5 in Sports Coaching and BTEC HND Level 4/5 in Exercise, Health & Injury Prevention.
