Sport Exercise Development

It was part of my scholarship with Sunderland AFC.

Sport and exercise is my passion.

The learning, placements, modules and skills set you up for a role in coaching.

They were extremely supportive, go the extra mile to help and are experts at building rapport with students.

The atmosphere was great, positive and the perfect environment for learning.

Sports coaching, fitness testing, kinesiology. The full course really.

John Rushworth, my tutor, was extremely knowledgeable and supportive, helped guide me and kept me motivated on the course. The coaching, movement and exercise development was also inspirational on the course.

Do it. The college has many benefits for personal development.

I am a founder and head coach of Dynamic, a customised lifestyle, health and fitness organisation.

It has given me the platform on which to build and the experience and knowledge I needed. It has helped me identify my vision and own personal ambitions.

A massive thank you to all who helped and supported me during my time at the college and for the continuous support I receive to this day. I would also like to personally thank John Rushworth for his amazing contribution and invaluable support and guidance which is ongoing.
