Coleg Sir Gâr has recognised the academic abilities of students on vocational sports programmes with an awards celebration.
Level two and three BTEC diploma students were shortlisted to receive student of the year awards and acknowledged for their study commitments.
These full-time programmes offer students the opportunity to study sports and exercise anatomy, physiology, psychology, sports injuries, coaching, biomechanics, sports massage and analysis.
Final year extended diploma students will be leaving for university, employment or joining the college’s own degree programmes in sport, which boast excellent retention, completion and employment rates. It is supported by a unique work based learning element which offers experience with organisations including Scarlets, Actif Sir Gâr and local primary and secondary schools.
Christy Anson-Harries, assistant curriculum head at Coleg Sir Gâr said: “We put a great emphasis on students achieving both practical and academic skills in all our sports programmes.
“We encourage full participation in our range of sports academies and offer gold standard equipment in our bespoke performance hub, which this year will be complemented by a brand new sports and performance centre.”
Steps to success: Coleg Sir Gâr sports students who won awards to recognise their academic abilities in sport science, development and performance.
