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 Adventurous Activities
Previous school: Meole Brace School, Shrewsbury

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.

Level 2 ACTIVE IQ Certificate in Personal Training

The part-time courses at Shrewsbury Colleges Group were perfect for me as they fit in around my career and social life. It was a very different experience coming back into education as an older learner, but the staff and fellow students made me feel welcome. The classes taught me exactly what I needed and I felt encouraged to take on the other fitness courses.
