Sophie BrayHost: Sophie works at CIMSPA as Education and Endorsement Officer. Everyday I work with an awesome team, talk to partners around the UK and develop different projects. I have always been interested in and played sports, mostly netball! I initially wanted to become a vet, and studied Zoology at university to Masters level, then worked abroad in Asia doing conservation or turtles, sharks and corals whilst becoming a diving instructor, before heading back to the UK, training to become a teacher and then starting my position at CIMSPA!

The Sport and Physical Activity industry is HUGE!

There is a massive scope for careers, so in this class, students will be shown various pathways into the industry, different jobs available, what employers are looking for and how CIMSPA can help start and develop your career. 

An incredibly useful class for students with a passion for sports and physical activity and curious how they can turn their passion into a career as well as for students who don't know what kind of career they'd like, this class can provide inspiration into a whole host of careers you may not have known existed.
