What I did on my work experience
I had an amazing opportunity to coach ‘The Portishead Academy of Gymnastics’ and ‘Mullion Gymnastics Centre’ at the Magical Classic Gymnastics Competition in Orlando. I had competed in Florida twice before but it was a new experience coaching. As part of our course, we also get the chance to coach children from Hartpury Primary School once a week. We design and run sessions for them and then get the opportunity to go on a nine-week full-time placement at a school, where we receive feedback from both our lecturers and the teachers.
My lecturers at Hartpury are always willing to help, and will always give little tips which I can use for the next time I coach and that will help me achieve my ambition of becoming a coach or teacher. The work experience is great for your CV, as is the fact I’m now one of the Hartpury Young Ambassadors.
