Sport Development, Coaching and Fitness BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma
I was already boxing at the Pat Benson Boxing Academy in Birmingham when UCB lecturers came to the gym to talk about the programme. I was originally trying to get into Army college in London but as soon as I found out about the UCB Boxing Academy I knew it would be beneficial to me and develop me as a boxer.
The BTEC is great because it gives you a qualification which you can take into your training programme.
Unfortunately, I have dislocated my shoulder for the third time and will be having keyhole surgery. But completing the course means I will still have a qualification, whatever happens.
I would recommend the BTEC to any kid interested in sport because it gives you a fall-back.
