Course taken: Sports Coaching HND Level 5
School attended: Queen Elizabeth School
What are you doing after College?
I am undecided at the moment whether or not to go away to university or to look into employment. I would like to go to UCLan but I’m also really keen to start using what I have learnt at College.
What were the best bits about your course?
The opportunities that I have had for volunteering have been amazing. There has been plenty of chances for me to use the skills that I have accumulated on my course in a real work environment. I also had the chance to go to Bulgaria to coach children which was an amazing experience. I have also had an amazing opportunity to organise a Netball event for primary school children.
Why did you choose your course?
I have already finished the Sports Coaching Level 3 at LMC, and rather than going straight into university, I wanted to continue studying here. It is local for me and I know all the tutors really well so it made sense for me to stay.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
I had heard really good things about the Sports department at LMC which is why I came to study the Level 3, but the facilities and staff were so good that I couldn’t think of any reasons that I would want to study somewhere else!
What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the course?
Make sure that you can be dedicated to the course. The workload requires a lot of time, including any home study. You really need strong motivation to work at the Higher Education level.
Anything else you would like to tell us?
I have also had the opportunity to go to Bulgaria on a work experience trip to coach Bulgarian children which was an amazing experience.
