Case Study

Sports course leads to football coaching job!

Thomas Hopkins started on a Step into the Sport and Active Leisure Industry course at Coventry College. Thomas had been playing for the 2nd football team at the Henley campus for two years and as part of his study programme he had the opportunity to study for an FA coaching badge, and this helped him to get a job with Sky Blues in the Community as a football coach.

Thomas said “My lecturer told me about the recruitment day and I was delighted to get the part-time coaching job as I am still studying for my level 3 sport qualification”

Since working for the Sky Blues, Thomas has gained his level 2 and 3 coaching badges.

He says “You have got to believe in what you want to do and then stick to your plan!

I am hoping to do the personal trainer and the gym instructor courses as it will give me the option of three different jobs in the future. I am very grateful to Woody my tutor who gave me the opportunity to coach as I have always loved playing football and I am keen to pass my knowledge on to younger children.”
