“I learnt many transferable skills, such as client interaction and six-week training programmes that I have been able to use in the workplace. The work placement I undertook during my Foundation Degree was my key into the sport industry as it set me up to start my business in training and development. I also liked being based in the centre of town; I was never stuck for what to do and got to make lots of new friends.”
Tom has now started his own personal training business.
“This course covers a wide variety of topics. It gives you an insight into teaching, coaching and the business side of sport, and also provides you with an understanding of nutrition and sports therapy.”
