Sport and Physical Activity

“I always loved sport since a very young age. I really enjoyed GCSE PE and so went on to do Sport at HC6 as I was keen to become a coach.

This course was excellent at getting me to the University of Northumbria and I have not only qualified as a Sports Coach, but also run my own business working with many schools and partnerships across the north-East of England.”
