Student Testimonial, why study Sports Development, Coaching and Fitness?
Such a wide range of topics covered on the course, I had no idea sport was such a wide-ranging topic. I loved doing PE at school and this course is helping me on my route to becoming a PE teacher. It is hard getting used to the different units but completing the assessments regularly suited my learning needs much more. I always hated exams. All of the PE staff are so helpful, they are always making the course fun and enjoyable whilst also giving advice on the best ways to complete the assignments. I love that we still get to do some practical units! Year 13 students
