A group of Year 10 GCSE PE students recently visited Exeter University sports campus to further their interest in a career in sport. The trip was an exciting insight for the students to see their theory in practice in the lab.
All the students thoroughly enjoyed the trip, engaging in the fitness tests and comparing themselves with others. They learnt new skills and gained a more in depth knowledge of the science behind sport.
Whilst in the Science labs the students were also told about potential careers that are available as a result of studying the A level PE Course and a Sports based degree. The students were interested in how may sports based courses are now available and I feel this may inspire them to take this path.
