Great Careers in Sport

The sport and leisure industry is one or the largest and fastest growing industries in the world, offering a wide range of career opportunities.

If you’re an active person and want a career in the sport and leisure industry, then there are plenty of career opportunities out there. Most people today are members of a sports club or attend a sporting event on a regular basis – which means a booming jobs market for you. The college also runs various sports academies and has close links with local clubs, giving students the chance to develop their sporting skills and train at a professional level.

There are also many exciting careers within the sports industry, which don’t actually involve playing, such as sports science, marketing, event management, coaching and teaching. The college offers many extra qualifications to help you boost your job prospects within these area, such as our Sports Leadership Award and Personal Trainer Certificate.

Whichever path you choose, our team of dedicated sports lecturers and instructors, combined with our great links with local clubs and lost of volunteering opportunities, will set you up for a great career!
