Working in partnership with the Sports Therapy Organisation (S.T.O.) there is an opportunity for a sports massage course for students within the School of Sport and Exercise Science. The completion of this course would provide industry recognised certification as well as being a potential springboard for future progression onto a sports and remedial massage course (Year 2) and then a sports therapy diploma (Year 3). It is hoped that our links with the S.T.O. would also provide a network for subsequent placement opportunities at local events and with local teams/athletes.
The cost of the initial sports massage course will be £600 (£500 for formal training/delivery, £100 for S.T.O registration, external assessment and certification), with all formal delivery taking place over a single 7 day period. Dates are to be confirmed, but due to the intensive nature of the course it is likely that it will be scheduled during one of the research and self-directed learning weeks, either pre/post Christmas or at Easter.
If you are interested in attending this course then please get in touch with Danny Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register your details and to be updated with further information. Be aware that the number of places available will be limited, so the sooner you can get in touch the better.
Note: Some students with an equivalent qualification have received paid placements recently. A few weekends’ work could pay for the cost of the course.
