Mathew Cahil

Course: Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing
Previous school attended: Durham Johnston Comprehensive School

Mathew said New College Durham was the first place he thought of when he decided he wanted to further his education.

He said:

“The college was really close to home and had a fantastic reputation so I decided to find out what they had to offer. I was really impressed with the gym facilities within the College. After talking to the lecturer who would be teaching my course, I decided that New College Durham was the right college for me.

“I knew I wanted to become a Personal Fitness Coach so I was really excited about the Level 2 instructor course. After completing the course at New College Durham, I progressed to Sunderland University to study for a Level 3 Personal Training qualification.

“New College Durham gave me a strong foundation of skills that I was able to apply to my studies at university, and eventually to my work as a Fitness Instructor.”

“The College had courses to suit everyone.  Having the option of both full and part-time courses meant that I could choose a course to fit my needs and now have my dream job, something I would never be able to say if I hadn’t decided to study at New College Durham.”

Mathew is now a qualified Fitness Instructor.
