Why did you join the Sports Academy and how?

I found out about the academy online and got more information from Careers Wales. I joined because I love sport and have a huge interest in becoming a coach, this course looked and sounded appealing.

Best thing about MPCT and how the course will help you in the future?

The best thing about the course is that all the learning involved is active which is something that I didn’t get in school. I feel that this helps me learn better, and more quickly. This course not only provides the opportunity to work towards qualifications in sport and fitness but my tutors have a massive variety of contacts within the sporting community that give me the best opportunity to find a work-placement, apprenticeship and hopefully employment.

Life after MPCT, what do you plan to do next?

After I finish my time at the Sports Academy I hope to find employment as a sports coach, preferably football as I feel that is my strongest sport. I’d also like to keep working towards gaining more qualifications in the coaching industry to better my knowledge and ability.
