Course taken: Sport Level 3
School: Our Lady’s Catholic College
University attending after college:
Football Scholarship at the University of Montevallo in Alabama USA, while studying Kinesiology. This allows me to play competitive female football at its highest standard alongside getting a degree.
What were the best bits about your course?
The best parts about Level 3 Sport were the oversea trips and the coaching opportunities. I went on two oversea trips with LMC, the first one was to Club La Santa in Lanzarote for my work experience, which gave me a great insight into the industry. My second trip was to Bulgaria for three weeks coaching foreign children in sports they may or may not have played before, and also for one hour a day we taught the children English. These opportunities gave me more confidence in leading groups of children and being able to manage a group effectively.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
I chose this college because it’s local to me and had the course I wanted to enrol on. I knew someone who went to LMC and also went on a Scholarship to America so I knew that’s what I wanted to do.
What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the same course?
It’s a great environment to be in, the staff really care about their students and will push you to get work finished and to turn up to training. It’s not a place for messing about because if you fall behind it can be hard to catch. There are so many opportunities with this course to experience some great places all over the world. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at LMC, the staff have helped me achieve my biggest goal and they can do the same for you!
How has LMC helped you to get where you are today?
All the opportunities offered to me at LMC have helped me grow as a person and gain more skills. These skills are not just appropriate for when I was at college, but skills that I can use for the next steps in my future.
