What were your expectations when you first joined?
Before getting to know the course I expected the workload and intensity to be a high and this was the case. However, as I developed my personal skillset I was able to balance this better and it made the course more relaxed. Also, I had expectations of developing my coaching qualifications such as FA Level 2 and developing my personal skills to make year 2 of the course more appropriate for me. This included things such as time management, organisation and building my confidence as a leader. But from the course itself, the induction week really helped me understand the needs and wants of the course which allowed me to become well equipped for the year ahead and I have enjoy the course.
What is your favourite part of the programme?
My favourite part of the programme is having a range of coaching opportunities to practice what I am learning in lesson and put it into action whilst on the field. Also having the chance to expand my knowledge of coaching by doing qualifications to help me become more employable and have greater subject specialisms.
What are your next steps after the programme?
I want to complete the full honours degree (BSc) and build up my hours working within the community programme. This will allow me to build up my knowledge and experience levels which will help me towards my overall goal of achieving my UEFA B licence and coaching in an academy.
