Sport Performance and Excellence BTEC Level 3 Diploma
I heard about UCB because my sister came here to do Hair and Beauty. I went on to the website and saw there was an open evening. I went along and got a really good feeling about the college, that it was the right place to be.
I am a footballer, a right back, and it’s great that there are students from different sports on the course – a sprinter, boxers, a figure skater as well as other footballers. You learn stuff from different sports that you can put to use in your own sport.
We have been learning about combined fitness, different types of fitness and health screening and how to conduct tests on clients. We learn about physiology and how the muscles and bones and joints work together – and assess risks and hazards in sport, which is important if you want to do coaching.
My dream is to be a pro footballer or at least play in the Conference. If it doesn’t work out I will be a personal trainer thanks to the skills I have learnt at UCB. The college gives you the opportunity to be the best you can be.
