Future opportunities

Students also complete a recognised first aid qualification. As this is an enrichment activity, students studying any other course can choose this option. All students studying this course agree that they have greater confidence and are more aware of their communication skills at the end of the course. This will help in all situations. Many students use the experiences they have gained throughout the course to enhance their personal statements for employment and university applications. There are also Level 3 qualifications in leadership available through the British Sports Trust.
