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.
“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.
