Name: Zygimantas Leskauskas
Inspire Suffolk programme: BTEC Education and Football Scholarship
Zygi graduated from our BTEC Football Scholarship this year and is planning to start a Strength and Conditioning course at University of Suffolk this coming September. Wanting to continue his interest in sport once leaving school, Zygi enrolled on to our scholarship. With a mix between practical football training and academic study, our scholarship is the perfect opportunity for those considering a future career in sport.
What have you enjoyed most about the programme?
I enjoyed the football side the most as we could play different teams and train, which helped us to progress further. This allowed me to be more confident on the pitch and make better decisions. I also enjoyed the visits out to Suffolk Strength Academy as it was good to work in a different environment outside the classroom.
What have you learnt over the 2 years of the programme?
I learnt a lot about football itself and the other sides of it. The unit that I liked the most was all about the human body and functions, which will help me in my next course at University. The tutors were very knowledgeable and I found the lessons really enjoyable.
Would you recommend the course?
Overall the programme was really enjoyable and I gained a lot out of the course. I would recommend future scholars to try their best in doing their work so they get the best possible grades for them in the future. They should try and enjoy every single game that they play and try to enjoy every single lesson.
