Darren is studying a Level 3 in Sports Year 1.

"When I first arrived at the College, I was quite nervous, shy and reserved about being in a college which seemed like a more adult environment to school, plus I had only been in the UK for three years.

I managed to complete my GCSE English and Maths whilst studying the Level 2.

I feel I have grown in confidence during my time at college, working part time in a sports retail store and as a Student Ambassador.

The type of sports we have been able to try includes the usual ones like Football and Basketball, but also ones I have never tried before such as Hockey and Curling.

I know there is much more to the course than just playing Sports. It has been fascinating to learn anatomy, physiology, nutrition, etc.

I would recommend the course to anyone with a passion for sports; the tutors and staff are great, plus we get to use the Fitness Centre next to the College for free!”
