James Burgoyne

Course tutor and rugby player

Having gained his sport and fitness qualifications here at University College Birmingham, tutor James knows just how valuable such a grounding is for making a mark in the industry.

Starting out on an Extended Diploma in Sport and Level 1 Certificate in Coaching, James was supported by the College to complete Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications before progressing onto our degree course in Sport and Fitness Studies – and subsequently made the move into teaching.

James, who also plays as a loosehead prop for RFU National League Two rugby side Bournville RFC, explained the benefits of studying our BTEC Sport and Fitness course.

“You will be fully prepared for a career within the fitness sector, managing clients, supporting clients with injuries and strength and conditioning,” said James.

“You will also have the opportunity to undertake additional qualifications to enhance your professional practice, so you really stand out from the crowd.

“Our elite facilities enhance the experience and ensure students have a head start when applying for job roles.”
