Hull College in a league of their own

Hull FC League have given Lincolnshire sports students the chance to tackle a day’s sporting skills and leadership training.

North Lindsey College students on a range of sport-related courses took part in physical and classroom activities to gain a rugby league leadership award.

Chloe Myers, 17, who is studying a level three subsidiary diploma in sport, said: “I want to go on to university and then
become a physiotherapist or PE teacher. Today’s course has been really useful —
and good fun.”

Danny Scott, ‘Grow the Game’ officer with Hull FC, said:  “Everyone gains a vocational qualification in a day, enabling them to assist with coaching in the community.”

He said the lessons learned could be adapted to any sport or job, and would enable the students to develop their leadership skills. “As well as learning coaching skills, individuals develop their confidence and gain transferable skills, which are great to put on a CV,” said Mr Scott.
