Corona-virus and training
at Sports Therapy UK


17th April 2020.

Since the closure of all non-essential places of work on 23rd March, and the extension to this announced by the government yesterday, we have postponed several practical training courses and contacted all affected students directly. These changes are also noted on the Course Dates webpage on our website.

During this period, we will be offering blended learning including online training for parts and in some cases, all of certain courses.

We remain fully committed to ensuring you have an enjoyable and rewarding learning experience fully supported by our tutors and all staff at Sports Therapy UK.

Information for new students


If you are thinking of studying with us, please see all courses on our website. We have some that may be completed online and others that may be started via virtual learning and continued by attend our training centre when dates are available.

Our online resources include full audio presentation tutorials, comprehensive practical demonstrations on video, self-test quizzes to check your learning, plus tutor support by email, phone and conference calls.

Please note that our full Level 3 and Level 4 Sports Massage qualifications cannot be achieved via the online course alone. All students will be required to attend practical training on dates when available to complete their studies and pass all remaining assessments to achieve their qualification.

We are in close contact with our awarding body Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) and will continue to conform with their current educational criteria ensuring our students will be eligible for their chosen award upon successfully completing our course.

Information for current students


Please refer to the Announcements on your Canvas online Learner Resource where you will find up to date information of how we are helping students who are at varying stages of their training with us.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and will decide on whether to delay each course at least 2-3 weeks before they are due to run. We will only start to deliver direct contact practical training when restrictions are lifted, and it is deemed safe for us to do so.

It is our aim to provide you with resources and support to continue your journey with us including virtual learning. When our practical training starts again, we will be arranging some additional training days for practise and to help review and hone all your skills.

Contacting Sports Therapy UK


As we are now working from different locations, we encourage you to contact us by email as the preferred choice. We will reply as promptly as we can and appreciate your patience and understanding during this very difficult time. Level 3 VTCT Sports Massage Online Course Instructions
