Adult learner Helen Thompson
Qualified gym instructor and fitness trainer Helen Thompson signed up for the college’s First Steps into Sports Coaching course to expand her knowledge and create new job opportunities.
The 49-year-old said: “I have really enjoyed the course – it’s been brilliant. I’ve been on work experience and carried out sports sessions for up to 100 people.
“The course has opened so many new doors and I can see many new opportunities I’m spoilt for choice.
“I’m so glad that there are still courses out there for mature students. I’ve been able to socialise, meet new people and opened myself up to so many new possibilities.”
