GTI was definitely a step in the right direction for me, as during my time here studying sports and leisure-soccer skills,I have learned many new skills from improving my knowledge in the classroom to skills in the gym and one of the biggest highlights of my time here which really developed my social and communication skills was getting the opportunity to undertake work experience in Glasgow. Overall this course really helped and guided me towards my career in the sporting industry, enhancing my skills in more ways than one. I am very grateful to GTI for giving me the opportunity to further continue my studies at the University of Bolton, Manchester, where I am currently a second year student, studying Sports Rehabilitation. Without the help of my teachers here I would not be where I am today.
This is a full-time, one-year course and runs from September - May.
