The department is committed to career progression and training. We can assist with getting additional coaching qualifications and attending specialist courses to enhance your coaching C.V. We can also provide time for post graduate study. Where appropriate additional classroom teaching can be offered and experience also gained in other areas of the school such as our marketing and commercial departments.
