I came straight into the PCET course after studying Sports Conditioning, Rehab and Massage at university, because I want to become a teacher. For me, the placement is the best part of the course. I’m teaching sport and public services at Torfaen Learning Zone, and it’s giving me that real life experience where the real learning happens. I’ve really increased my confidence and now I believe in myself.
