The extended sport course I am currently undertaking is completely different to what I expected when I first came. It has changed my perception of education as a whole and has interested me in going to University, something which I wasn’t even considering when I first arrived. I chose this course as I wasn’t too keen on tests and never really performed well in them, I also really enjoy sport and thought this course would complement both those factors.
The workload is manageable and allows you to spend your free time doing what you want, instead of having to catch up and revise. What I most enjoy about my course is the practical aspect of it, there are multiple different units and some of them involve being able to play sport, coach each other, and build on what we have learnt in the course. It has been restricted this year due to covid, but it has still been very enjoyable and something I look forward to. The course has also allowed me to narrow down what I want to do as a career and what I want to study at university, there are multiple different options within sport that this course open and prepare you for. The teachers also very helpful and are always on hand to give you some help, advice or anything required, which has helped everyone ease into the college and made the process a whole lot easier.
