News: Excit­ing news for sports stu­dents here at Not­ting­ham College

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

A career in sports offers an excit­ing and reward­ing future to our stu­dents who have cho­sen to study Sport with us.

Sport has long been linked with pos­i­tive health and well­be­ing, and seen as a cru­cial com­po­nent of pos­i­tive men­tal health too. Careers in sport extend to a whole range of dif­fer­ent path­ways includ­ing per­son­al train­ing, fit­ness and coach­ing, men­tor­ing and well­be­ing sup­port, nutri­tion, sports team sup­port, mar­ket­ing and pro­mo­tion, teach­ing and much more.

Not­ting­ham Col­lege has launched its new Fast Track Acad­e­my to help our stu­dents explore the full range of sports careers out there and to con­nect them to teams, clubs and indi­vid­u­als who are mak­ing their mark in the sports indus­try local­ly and regionally. 

Togeth­er, and through our Fast Track Acad­e­my we are able to offer stu­dents a full range of expe­ri­ences in dif­fer­ent sports. 

The Not­ting­ham Col­lege Fast Track Acad­e­my is a net­work of sports clubs, organ­i­sa­tions and indi­vid­u­als who want to col­lab­o­rate in the inter­ests of nur­tur­ing tal­ent, sup­port­ing young peo­ple on their edu­ca­tion­al and sport­ing jour­ney, cham­pi­oning health and well­be­ing, pro­mot­ing sports careers and iden­ti­fy­ing new train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to ben­e­fit our sector. 

The Fast Track Acad­e­my is a new ini­tia­tive that will help us on our way to have a pos­i­tive impact on our sport­ing community. 

Already our net­work has sparked inter­est from Not­ting­ham Rug­by League, Not­ting­ham Lions Ice Hock­ey, Not­ting­ham Ten­nis, Win­mau darts, the Junior Darts Cor­po­ra­tion, and a range of oth­er com­mu­ni­ty clubs. We were proud to con­tribute to the edu­ca­tion of the elite schol­ars at Notts Coun­ty and Not­ting­ham For­est, work­ing with the LFE, and all these part­ner­ships help towards pro­vid­ing sports train­ing and com­pet­i­tive oppor­tu­ni­ties for all young people. 

If you are a sports club, indi­vid­ual work­ing in sport coach­ing or deliv­er com­mu­ni­ty sports projects, we’d love to hear from you. You can email Ollie Judd or Gary Hors­ley at Not­ting­ham Col­lege: oliver.​judd@​nottinghamcollege.​ac.​uk or gary.​horsley@​nottinghamcollege.​ac.​uk.

You can also down­load our Fast Track Sport Acad­e­my brochure here which has more information.

Over the sum­mer, we’ll be bring­ing you more excit­ing news about some of our new part­ners, so watch this space to find out more!
