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.

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 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.

Level 3 Football & Education Extended Diploma in Sport

I loved all the practical fitness in the first year of the course and it is so interesting to learn about anatomy and physiology. The tutors and facilities are great with good, professional coaching.

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.
