“I chose this course because it allowed me to participate & experience a range of different sports, whilst completing my studies. I have really enjoyed the primary school placements as this has given me a great knowledge of experience for the future, including allowing me to deliver sessions to groups of children, which I believe I will benefit from in the long run.”
