Higher education students from Club Doncaster Sports College have just returned from their residential to Rosedale, North Yorkshire, where they enjoyed a two-night team-bonding trip.
Launching themselves out of their comfort zones, a group of Sport and Exercise Science students enjoyed zip wiring and mountain biking through the forest, to celebrate their hard work over the academic year.
There to join them on their adventure was deputy principal, Joe Burton who has been delighted with their dedication on course.
He said: “The trip really gave the students the opportunity to develop as people but also as a team member, which is vital for entering the sports industry.
“Despite the rain, their attitude was amazing, they really got stuck in and took the opportunity to develop their skills. I think experiences like this help to shape their learning, it’s easier to create an example for them if they have experienced it and I think that’s one of the reasons they have done so well.
“Some of the students are on course to get high grades this summer and we’re really proud of the progress they are making.
“Students can look forward to more of these enrichment experiences in year two because things like this can be just as valuable as lessons.
“Other first year practical lessons have included Xscape, Castleford, for a coaching module looking at skiing and Doncaster Tennis Club as well as taking advantage of our own facilities here at Doncaster Rovers such as training ground visits.”
The HNC/HND higher education programmes hosted by Club Doncaster Sports College are in partnership with Selby College and have the option of a third year to complete the degree.
There are still limited places available for academic year 17/18, for more information contact Club Doncaster Sports College on 01302 764663 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
