‘The confidence to keep going’

2nd February 2017

Matthew organises and manages summer school holiday clubs for children in the Warwickshire area.

He says couldn’t have followed his dream without the support of Hereward College.

Matthew left Hereward with BTEC level 3 in Sports (A level equivalent) – having progressed from level 1 when he first started at college.

He works with his brother running sports clubs for children and organises and manages active summer school holiday clubs in the Warwickshire area which include a range of sports from table tennis to football.

Matthew also gained some work experience during his time at Hereward and is delighted to have recently secured a permanent contract at Homebase – working part-time hours to fit around his sports coaching.

Matthew says: “If it wasn’t for the staff at Hereward who taught me the coaching experience, I wouldn’t be where I am now. They have given me the encouragement and confidence to keep going.”
