What I do on my work placement

After I was released by Accrington Stanley, I was facing the prospect of coming out of the bubble of professional football. I decided to commit to my degree course at Hartpury University and I haven’t looked back. I’ve already been at Millbrook Academy getting teaching experience, which gives me the chance to put everything I learn in the classroom into practice. I’ve been responsible for planning and delivery high quality PE and extra-curricular activities across all key stages and I’ll be doing even more placement hours there in my second year.

Career ambitions

I’d like to get back into professional football while achieving a first class honours degree, but I’ve learned that you never know what’s around the corner! I see myself teaching PE, ideally in a secondary school, which would mean going on to do my PGCE. Hopefully, I can become a role model like my PE teachers became to me.
