Course taken: Sport Level 3
School attended: Cartmel Priory School
What are you doing after College?
I will be doing sports coaching with Keith Singleton at KS Sports.
What were the best bits about your course?
The best parts of the course were having the chance to play for the college football team, only missing one game over the two years. I also enjoyed playing some new sports I hadn’t played before such as handball and having the opportunity to go on two work placements with the Westmorland County FA.
Why did you choose your course?
I was interested in sport especially football and the coaching side of it. I also enjoyed playing football and I have a good knowledge of sport, so wanted to do something I was interested in and knew a bit about. Several people I knew who had already completed the course highly recommended it too.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
Friends recommended the College, so I went to have a look for myself and was impressed! There was also a free bus which meant transport to and from college was free, which was important to me.
What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the course?
I would recommend the course but suggest getting as much work done as early as possible so as not to get overloaded later on. There are lots of opportunities such as work placements and trips which I really enjoyed.
Anything else you would like to tell us?
I have enjoyed the two year course and look forward to using the skills I have learnt when working full time.
