What are you doing after College?
After completing my college course, I am going to take a gap year and head out to Australia. When I return, I am going to university to study PE and School Sport, this will hopefully lead me to completing a PGCE and becoming a PE teacher.
What were the best bits about your course?
I have loved every moment of the course, coming away with numerous contacts within the sporting industry, experiences and life skills that will help me in Australia and also at University.
Why did you choose your course?
I chose the course because sport has always played a big part of my life, I have always known the career path that I wanted to go down therefore specializing in a sports course before university will help me with the theoretical side of the course. Coaching has always been something I have enjoyed, giving back something to the Cricket Club I was coached at and spent my childhood playing and watching therefore choosing the more practical sports course where I have worked with numerous different groups of students has given me quality experience that will be with me for the rest of my life.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
Coming from Kendal I never really considered it, however after the first visit I was highly impressed. The excellent facilities alongside numerous recommendations made the decision very easy for me, and a free bus makes life so much easier!
What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the course?
This course has a good balance of theory, practical and coaching experience which will stand you in good stead for whichever career path that you chose. I would recommend the course to anyone as the support from the tutors if needed is very good.
