Are you passionate about sport? Is your goal a career in the sports industry?

Are you keen to gain the qualifications that employers want while improving your own sporting ability?

Whether it’s training, managing or working in the areas of health and fitness, our exciting sport courses can see you first off the starting block and into a great career.

While some of our students are keen to become coaches or personal trainers, others find the science side of the industry fascinating and go on to become nutritionists or physiotherapists. Whether you want to get a job or continue your studies at university, you’ll get lots of personal guidance!

We have a fantastic gym, newly furnished to the highest specification with TechnoGym equipment, also used by England’s finest footballers at St George’s Park, home of the Football Association. We also have a brand new Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) and 3G rugby pitch. You’ll have help to devise your own personal fitness programme and could even train towards gaining gym instructor’s qualifications.

You’ll study the advances in sports science and technology, which is what makes this industry so fast paced and you’ll enjoy visits to sporting headquarters and leading venues.

Our sport students tell us they most enjoy:

  • Gaining unique practical experience in our specialist Sports Science Lab, which has over £40,000 worth of equipment!
  • Working alongside elite athletes including Crewe Alexandra FC’s first team players and local and international cyclists, triathletes and runners, who use our sports science lab
