This is an introductory course on Sports Psychology and is designed to help and support you during this period.
The course will give you an overview rather than equip you with every piece of knowledge and every known skill around sports psychology. It is divided into 2 major topics and within each topic there are a number of sections:
- Sport Psychology and the Role of the Sport Psychologist
- Mental Training Techniques.
Each topic contains a range of materials that are written, interactive and include video and online links as well as a selection of practical readings. In addition to generic materials, within each unit you will also see two specific sections:
Where you are required to apply existing or new knowledge to your situation; and
- Learn More
Where learning is taken a little deeper.
To help with your learning there is a final 20 question quiz (again you can take as many times as you need) – you will need to obtain 100% to progress and be able to download your completion certificate. You will be able to use this certificate as part of your education portfolio with future studies.
The course will take you somewhere between 45 and 90 minutes if you were to undertake it in a single sitting. This is dependent on your own learning style and whether you access the additional material that is included. You can also take the course in small chunks and come back to it at any time – your progress is tracked using small green ticks in the left hand navigation column.
The best thing about the course is that it is optimised for delivery across every single device you can name! So use your tablet, phone or computer (or all three), then sit back, relax and start the course via the button above.
