Advanced Certificate-Performance Analysis and Coaching Practice at UU

2016/17 part-time undergraduate course at Ulster University Jordanstown campus

Programme outline

The course is designed for both experienced coaches and talented athletes who wish to obtain greater understanding of performance analysis and reflective coaching practice either as a means to embed knowledge within current practice or as a route to career specialism within performance analysis.

This course will enable participants to critically explore the coaching cycle to develop a model of practice to maximise performance through performance analysis and reflection.

The educational aims of the course are to provide participants with the relevant knowledge and understanding of key principles and practices within performance analysis and coaching to enable them to contribute to both the running of their organisation and the advancement of the sector.

Course content

  • Building a performance model
  • Evidence based coaching and decision making
  • Integrating analysis in coaching
  • Reflective coaching practice
  • Player coach engagement


The course is based at the Jordanstown campus delivered through six days of interactive lectures followed by the facilitation of individual mentoring and directed independent learning.

The lectures will combine the use of case studies, group discussion, peer to peer teaching and practical activities. Each student will work closely with a mentor to develop a work based reflective journal and implement individual action plans relevant to their organisation.

On completion of the course participants will graduate with an Advanced Certificate in Performance Analysis and Coaching Practice equating to 60 credits at level 5.

This course can be used as an educational pathway for entry into the existing under graduate and post graduate provision within the School of Sport.
