Name: Ashley Horne
Inspire Suffolk programme: BTEC Education and Football Scholarship
Ashley studied on our BTEC Scholarship programme graduating in July 2016 with D*DD (Distinction Star, Distinction, Distinction). While on the course, he applied to a BSC Sports Coaching and Physical Education degree course at Peterborough University and was accepted. Our scholarship provides the opportunity to gain a qualification equivalent to three A-Levels, which can be used to progress on to to University.
He has always been interested in sport so our Education and Football Scholarship seemed a perfect fit! We asked Ashley a few questions about his time at Inspire Suffolk…
What have you enjoyed most about the programme?
The football side! Also the visits to Suffolk Strength Academy in their strength and conditioning gym. Our tutors were very knowledgeable and engaging during my 2 years.
What have you learnt over the 2 years of the programme?
I have learnt a lot while studying on the course, but my favourite unit was sports injuries. I also enjoyed the practical learning units including player analysis and fitness testing.
Would you recommend the course?
I would! My advice is to complete your work to the highest standard and if you do that, then they could do whatever they wished to do, whether it be University or other things.
