What are you doing now?

I am involved as a Social Entrepreneur with a multi-sport community hub based in a former secondary school, now an academy. I have a number of tasks from day to day management of the club, budgeting, meeting the club’s objective to increase sustainable participation, overseeing the team of coaches, the recruitment and training of young people into sport, sourcing funding streams both for capital and revenue based projects and all internal and external communication.

What was it about Northumbria that made you decide to study here?

My National Governing Body, the LTA, chose Northumbria as an education provider and paid for part of my fees. However the flexibility, professionalism and excellent IT resources for long distance learning students was a massive draw to studying here.

What was it like studying at Northumbria?

A positive and enriching experience with excellent educational resources.

What was the best thing about your course?

The lecturers were very supportive and understanding. I was expecting stuffy lecturers and they were professionals but reasonably laid back and always engaging. 

How did studying at Northumbria help you achieve your career goals/ give your career an edge?

I was already in a job. However, the experience has helped me contextualise further what I do both verbally and in writing underpinning it all with theoretical references.

What advice would you give somebody who is thinking of studying at Northumbria?

You must have passion, to see what you want to do as well as courage of your convictions, perseverance and a spirit of sacrifice. The latter often reveals a meaning to what we do. Also make sure that your finances are in order; plan in advance, talk to other students and make sure you stay on track with your assignments.
