Matthew Harney

“I’ve always been interested in sport and looked to continue studying related subjects at sixth form. I found that sixth form wasn’t suited to me in terms of the focus being towards exam performance rather than other methods of assessment so I looked at doing the Level 3 course in Sport at the
College. “My communication and problem-solving skills have improved greatly during the course. The BTEC Level 3 course also gives you the opportunity to gain additional coaching qualifications which includes coaching in local primary schools to Level 1 in dodgeball and basketball. “I have also been part of the Football Academy and had a great couple of seasons. I have improved as a player and my social skills have improved by playing as part of a team. In the first season, the team came second in the English Colleges’ League and was runner up in the National Colleges’ Cup, which was played at Birmingham City’s football ground. This year, the team has won the English Colleges’ League and won the Cheshire County Cup Final. “After applying through UCAS I have received an unconditional offer of a place at Sheffield Hallam University to study a Sport Development Coaching Degree in September. Following this I plan to study a PGCE so I can go into teaching Sport in
either a primary or secondary school.”
