Vocational workshop for leading sports college Hartpury

The Fit House hosted a vocational workshop for Hartpury university. Hartpury is one of the UK’s leading specialist education providers in sport. The college, based in Gloucestershire, brought up 40 of their 2nd year BTEC national diploma students who are studying for a Level 3 Extended Diploma Performance & Excellence in Rugby.

The session was led by our youth and sports coaching specialist Frazer McArdell, who was previously a further education sports lecturer. The workshop was designed to link to course modules and improve employability, preparing the next generation of gym instructors and personal trainers. Activities were centered around real life scenarios, to help students translate their studies to the realities of the fitness industry.
