HND Sport – Tariq Arif

Subject Area

I previously worked as a full-time Sports Development Officer and attended college to complete my PGCE in Further Education. I have always wanted to work in either Sports Development or teaching. Luckily I have been able to do both and now teach from Level 1 up to HND. Each day is different and I thoroughly enjoy helping mould our young people into well-educated individuals. My job is to increase my students’ prospects as much as possible.

The overall course aims to support and educate learners with up-to-date material that relates to the outside world. All our teachers come with current industry knowledge which lends itself to teaching these subjects. We have a great link to local sports provisions and County Sports Partnerships, with good job opportunities with these partners.
