Do you have a passion for PE?  Want to know more about how to build a career in Sport and Coaching?

We would love your students to join us at this workshop with Gary to learn about the job roles and careers a sports qualification can open for them in the future.

Gary will share details on how he initially missed his first university choice, took an alternative qualification with his local FE college, before going on to complete his degree in Sports Exercise and Fitness.  Resilience and perseverance are key!

He is an experienced coach and has forged an exciting and rewarding career in this sector, working extensively with the Irish Football Association, including the Northern Ireland Senior Men’s Team.  He progressed into local journalism, before taking the huge step of setting up his own business, CORE Kids in 2018.  Here’s what we have planned for the workshop:

  • Overview of Gary’s Career Background in Sport
  • Sports Science – what’s it all about?
  • Becoming an entrepreneur – the highs and lows of setting up your own business
  • Mind Your Mental Health – the importance of self-care during exams season and times of stress
  • Final Q&A session
