FdSc Sport Performance placement success
Our Foundation degree Sport Performance students have has considerable success with work placements. Students have gained up to 300 hours work experience at institutions such as Chelsea FC, Cardiff City FC, Paris Saint-Germain and Gloucester RFC.
A great success has to be the link made between Hartpury and Cheltenham Town Football Club (CTFC). Four students assisted CTFC within their community development programme, delivering coaching to a variety of groups from after school clubs to disability sports aid. Not only have the students completed their FdSc Sports Performance Degree, they have also become excellent ambassadors for Hartpury.
“Students have frequently taken part in the major festivals run by Cheltenham Town, and all gaining positive feedback. Outside of coaching, positive feedback has been received from school receptionists, teachers, parents and the children that the students work with. The link with Hartpury has been excellent and we are excited for the future partnership.”
Ollie Roberts (Community Development Coordinator)
"Within the Sports Performance degree there were several modules that I found interesting and beneficial, but none more so than my placement experience. Before I studied at Hartpury I was a coach for Chelsea Football Club for two years and felt I had a very good understanding of coaching children, but it wasn't until after my work placement experience I realised how much I lacked.
For my placement I worked for Cheltenham Football Club within their community programme coaching different sports in different environments such as football, hockey and rugby in after school clubs, in school lessons, disability lessons, and officiating in tournaments. Looking back at my placement experience I thought it was the most enjoyable module on a great course and feel not only have I improved as a football coach but began to develop into a sports coach, which in turn will help me become a greater PE teacher in the future.”
