Level 3 ACTIVE IQ Certificate in Personal Training
Previous Institution: Mary Webb School

I left school and did the Diploma, then returned to do the Level 2 Personal Training course which gave me the expertise to be a fitness instructor, as well as specialist skills from modules in spinning, circuits, kettlebells and exercise to music. While I was doing the course I started working in local gyms and decided to progress to the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training, which is a distance learning course and allowed me to fit my studies around my work.

Level 3 Sports
Previous school: Overseas school

I wanted to do a sports focused course, but still look at a wide variety of sports – which is what you get at SCG, and I prefer continuous assessment rather than exams. The tutors are also really down to earth. I am part of the College Netball team and it is a great mix of students from all three campuses. I am going to Gloucester University to study Sports Therapy.

Level 3 Outdoor Activities
Previous school: Burton Borough School

The amount of activity days we get to go on throughout the year is amazing. It is a sporty and energetic course, but with so many amazing activities other than generic sports. It is great that we get to fundraise for a charity and even better that this year’s relates to someone on our course. Everyone works really hard on the course and the teachers are supportive – it’s great to be around like-minded people.

I've learnt many new skills on this course such as team building and team work, which I have put into practice with my peers when we have been mountain walking and the weather conditions have been bad.
