Students on the programme have also benefited from regular free access to Waveney Sports Centre thanks to a partnership with Sentinel Leisure Trust. The students have been able to use top-of-the-range facilities and equipment and have also been able to put their knowledge in to practice through work experience placements offering coaching to members.
