Courses Taken: Sport Level 3
Profession: Undergraduate at Leeds Beckett University
Years Studied: 2015 - 2017

I would recommend this course if you know you want a sport related career, even if you aren’t sure which area of sport specifically. The course explores many different aspects of sports and by developing an understanding of each topic you start to discover which area of sport suits you best.

It has given me the chance to learn professional skills without being overburdened by the pressures expected in a full-time role. I’ve enjoyed not being too worried about being slow or making mistakes because I have had access to regular support from both my employer and the College.

Courses Taken: Business & Enterprise Level 3
Profession: Marketing Assistant Apprentice
Years Studied: 2018 - 2022

To anyone thinking about starting an Apprenticeship I would say it’s a great idea. My Apprenticeship is allowing me to expand my industry knowledge and is helping me learn which job roles in the industry I’m best suited to. It is also helping me draw a clearer understanding of whether I want my next step to be university, or if I would like to continue with full time employment.
