Who is this course designed for?
This e-learning course is designed for young ATHLETES who are about to leave home for university, or any educational course away from home. The changes encountered when taking up a university place and moving away, represent one of the biggest transitions of a young persons life. Couple that with a commitment to sport and it can be quite a challenge to balance all the elements required. The early years of university are widely recognised as having one of the highest drop out rates from sport. If you are a young person who is passionate about sport, but you also want a good education, this course will give you the support and advice to make both work for you.
Eira Parry, the main author of this course, comes from a background of high performance sport and coupled with being a step-parent to an Olympian, brings a wealth of experience delivered in an easy to understand format. Eira coached for many years at a university sports club where athletes balanced international sport with gaining good qualifications.
