Studying a short course in sports
It is true that a short course is not a full qualification and that taking a short course will not necessarily guarantee you a job. There are, however, plenty of good reasons for choosing a short course instead of something else!
If you are already working somewhere in the sports or fitness industry, taking a short course can also be a way for you to improve, and widen, your current skill set. Learning new things, and getting further training, has always been an effective way of getting ahead in your field.
What about taking a short course in a subject you are unfamiliar with? This is a great way for you to broaden your horizons and become a multi-skilled professional. Especially when it comes to something like coaching, having more than one sports-type in your coaching repertoire is a great way to keep your employment options open.
Imagine you are applying for a rugby coaching job at a certain high school. Unfortunately, they tell you, this position has already been filled. But they are really in need of a hockey coach, if you know anybody that might be interested. As you can see, having more than one field of expertise can very advantageous in the job market.
A short course is also great for someone who wants to study part-time or doesn’t have the financial resources to take a more comprehensive course. Just because it is a short course, it does not mean it will give you a lesser quality education. That old saying applies here: What you put in will determine what you get out.
This counts for working in sports as well. The level of your qualification is only one small factor that will come into play when applying for a job. Your personality, expertise, skills, passion and dedication are things that will potentially matter more. So work hard and play hard when it comes to a career in sports and fitness!
