Two Year Course
"CTEC Sport gives me an insight into working in the sports industry. There are many different units including performance analysis where you look at stats for a player and create a performance profile, and sports injuries where you create a rehabilitation plan for an injured athlete. I also get to try the theory out with my own performance, playing football and badminton for Team ND. The teachers are really supportive, and we even did a team building day where I got to kayak learn about many different sports such as goal ball and short tennis".
