With three different pathways available, you’ll have the opportunity to develop transferable skills for employment and further study in whichever sporting career you choose.

With and eight-lane swimming pool, 80-station gym, squash courts and a freedom climbing wall, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to work on your practical skills as well as your coaching and development techniques.
We look closely at what employment trends are set for the coming years, meet with key employers and plan what you'll learn to match this, giving you the best chance of succeeding in your chosen career post-college.
