“The practical’s are fun and boost my confidence. The course leader has helped me get prepared for the next academic year (studying Level 2 Sport) and helped me find work experience in the sport I love (table tennis). My other tutor has motivated me to become more determined and helped improve my skills in different sports. I rate my first year a 10 out of 10. I’m progressing to Level 2 sport next academic year.”
