If you have a passion for sport, and you want to get a head start in your sporting career, come to SGS Stroud.

The sport and outdoor adventure industries are enjoying a period of rapid growth, which is driving demand for qualified instructors, coaches and managers. This year’s Olympic Games in London is creating even more of a buzz for sport, which will lead to more career opportunities for qualified and motivated students.

Our sports courses range from the Level 1 Foundation Learning in Sport and Active Leisure to the Level 3 Diploma in Sport (Performance and Excellence).

SGS Stroud is situated next to Stratford Park Leisure Centre, with its own football and cricket pitches, meaning students can take part in a wide range of sporting activity without travelling off-site. Facilities include an artificial turf pitch for outdoor football and hockey, a sports hall, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and fitness and health suites. What’s more, our merger with Filton College to become South Gloucestershire and Stroud College means a massive investment in the sports facilities available at SGS Stroud – so watch this space for news of our fantastic new facilities.

After leaving college, our students progress to career roles such as sports and leisure assistant, sports development officer, fitness instructor or sports coach, or go on to higher education to continue their studies.
