As Captain of the College’s Football team, what’s your experience of Sport here at the College?

I’m proud to be a Sports Ambassador and to be Captain of the College’s Football team. I’ve played Football all my life and hope to make a career out of sports coaching so my Sports course here at the College has been perfect. As a Sports Ambassador, I’ve been involved in running five-a-side football teams and with the other Ambassadors, we’ve created a sports equipment hire service for other students. It’s been challenging but rewarding, encouraging others to love sport as much as I do.

How do you know you want to be a Sports Coach?

I first did some coaching as part of my BTEC Sports course last year and knew that I loved it straight away. Since then, I’ve qualified as a Level 1 Football Coach through the Football Association and already have a job coaching 5-12 year olds.

How do you plan to further your experience as a Coach?

I’ve been offered a place at UCFB University (Wembley stadium) to study Sports Coaching and Business. My dream would be to run my own football coaching company.

What would your advice be to anybody coming to study Sport at Coulsdon College?

Do it! The course is very varied and includes Psychology, Physiotherapy, Sports Massage, Team Work, Coaching and lots more. Even if you don’t study Sport, come here and take part in sporting activities. There’s lots on offer.
