I chose this course as I am very passionate about sprot and wanted to have more opportunity to try new sports. I am enjoying the course so far and the best parts are how nice our tutors and lecturers are, as well as getting to mix with pupils from different schools and year groups. I am thinking about doing a certificate in emergency services after school because I would like to be a fire fighter. If you’re thinking about going this course, I would say it is really enjoyable and the qualifications and awards gained throughout are really beneficial.
