Sport case study

Erin McIntosh - Level in 3 Sport

"When I was looking at what college to go to I came to Newcastle College’s open event to find out more about the courses on offer. It was good to chat to tutors and get all the information about the courses. I made an applicant and was offered a place basically straight away but I took my time before accepting my place as I wanted to make sure it was the right place for me.

I think the College has great facilities and I enjoy studying and training in Trevelyan Sport Hall. Since starting my course, I have made lots of new friends, we share the same interests. I enjoy the theory side of coaching and learning how to put this into practice, the tutors are great a supporting you with this.

Outside of college I compete in kickboxing and karate, I am Double British, Double European and Triple World Champion. In the next 5 years I hope to progress onto the Newcastle College University Centre to complete a coaching degree. In the future I would like to run my own facility where I can coach others in karate and kickboxing, whilst also training for regional, national and international competitions."
