Sport & Fitness is so much more than keeping fit. Our department tutors are still very much active in the industry, from sports coaching to physiotherapy and bring a lot of that to the classroom. From strength and conditioning to coaching to nutrition, our sports department will prepare you for your future career.

Some examples of career paths you can take include: PE Teacher, Sports Therapist, Sport Development Practitioner and Strength & Conditioning Coach.

“I’ve been playing rugby league since I was 6 years old so it seemed only natural to study Sport at Lakes College as it offers a rugby academy on the side. My dream is to be a professional rugby player but the best thing about my course is that as well as the practical we also study sport theory. This would allow me to progress onto university and pursue a career in something like physiotherapy if the rugby doesn’t work out. I have a lot of options available to me.”
