Meet the Staff
I have worked in training for over 10 years delivering sports coaching and exercise to young people who wish to pursue a career in the sports and active leisure industry. During this time I have completed my Post 16 Teaching Qualification, A1 Assessor Award and V1 Internal Verifier Qualification, all of which has enabled me to couple my coaching and instructing background with teaching practices. Before working in Training I work for many years in Local Authority Sports Development and Community Development. I currently play semi-professional rugby for Newport RFC and have represented Wales in Baseball.
"The best part about working in training and education through sports and fitness, in the ability it has to engage with young people from all backgrounds and abilities. The physical active learning opportunities allows us as teachers to ensure that all learning is innovative and fun for all."Ryan James
I have 14 years of experience as a Training Instructor delivering Sport and Exercise qualifications. I have completed a BSc Hons in Applied Sports Science, Post 16 Certificate in Education, A1 Assessors Award and V1 Verifiers Award. These have allowed me to function effectively in engaging, motivating and educating young people. In my spare time, I am Head Coach of my club of 17 years, Ystrad Rhondda RFC.
I love the opportunity to promote health and wellbeing through sport and exercise. The skills and characteristics we develop through sport and exercise can be transferred to everyday life. The college provides an opportunity to experience this through our Inspired curriculum, promotion of active learning and creating a positive learning environment.Dylan Jones
