Jordan Lawrence has gone from strength to strength in her time at Doncaster College.
Jordan, 20, started on a Level 2 in Sport course and has shown an excellent willingness and attitude that has helped her progress to the subsidiary diploma and then onto the Extended Diploma in Sports and Exercise Science.
Jordan, from Intake Doncaster, has faced a number of challenging situations that could have prevented her development but she has come through and she has landed her dream job of coaching Basketball with the Doncaster based Danum Eagles.
Jordan said, ‘It’s been a bit up and down, but being on the sports course has helped me a lot to get me where I am today. When I first arrived at college I had a bit of an attitude, I was always in trouble and arguing with everybody but the tutors gave me a chance, they believed in me and gave me hope and if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be coaching basketball and working in my dream job.
Jordan has also trained as a Cybormentor. CyberMentors are young people aged 11-17 who receives two days intensive face-to-face training from BeatBullying staff. Once graduating they mentor, guide, and support other young people from all around the country on issues of bullying, cyberbullying and wellbeing.
Stewart Sanderson, her course leader at Doncaster College, said, ‘It is excellent that Jordan has progressed through the courses and is being successful in her chosen career.’
Not only as the tutors support been amazing but my subject has also helped me to prepare me for coaching by helping me to develop my skills’
