Students take on knowledge from Foundation staff

11 January 2019

Club Doncaster Foundation staff members Nick Gillott and Scott Copeland spoke to Year 13 Club Doncaster Sports College students regarding their Development and Provision of Sport and Physical Activity unit.

The health and wellbeing duo, who have more than 20 years of combined industry experience between them, took to the classroom to educate the next generation of sporting leaders.

The interactive lecture focussed on Scott and Nick's background in health and sport, passing on key information to the current BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma College students. scott-teaching-wide-shot.png

The students have been asked to do tasks and sit an exam around the development and provision of sport and physical activity, to which Nick and Scott were able to talk through their own initiatives, including the Foundation's own Fit Rovers and Bike Library projects.

College sports lecturer, Mark Ellames, was grateful for their help and insight, something which Mark thinks will really help the students moving forward with their own projects.

He said: "Having industry specialists like Scott and Nick in to share their knowledge and experience of delivering multiple health and sports development initiatives was a great opportunity and inspiration for our students.

"We hope this session has given the students examples of real life initiatives they can apply to their own work."
