I am currently in my second year of Level 3 Sport at the College. I have really enjoyed the programme; it’s a nice wide variety of science-based units - looking at the body, learning techniques and coaching and then the more practical things. The tutors have been really good, the support has been great – you always get feedback on the work you’ve submitted.
One of the reasons why I decided not to go to Sixth Form and came to College was because I wanted a bit of a change from school and I like the way the programme was run. Here you get a bit more independence and it’s a bit more evident that this is your programme and your work that you are doing. I’ve liked being able take control of that and it’s not all been exam based.
I've been volunteering with Sport on your Doorstep for two evenings per week. They run multi-sports sessions for children in the local community. It's really helped me to put into practice what I am learning at College.
I have applied for university and want to study Sports, Health & Exercise Science. I am still waiting to hear back from Brunel University London which is my first choice, but I have had offers from Bournemouth University and Canterbury Christ Church University. I would actually prefer to do a degree apprenticeship, but it’s harder to find those in the subjects I am interested in which is the science and mechanics behind sport and fitness. If one comes up I’ll take it, but I am more than happy to move onto university!
