Level 3 Football & Education Extended Diploma in Sport
Previous Institution: Meole Brace School, Shrewsbury
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.
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.
