What our students say

Throughout my experience volunteering with the Coaching Academy I have learnt a lot of new skills that I can use when I am coaching or on placement. The Coaching Academy has been a fantastic, wonderful, interesting and challenging opportunity. You can take it up alongside your studies at the college and with opportunities to gain qualifications and the experience it will help you to find employment or move onto higher education in the future.
