"I went straight from uni into a graduate job working for a sports travel company called inspiresport and found Active Valleys really prepared me for it as I had to coordinate logistics for school sports trips and organise coaching roadshows on behalf of the company- like I'd done with Active valleys."
"Also the organisation gave me experience of working with NGBs and other delivery partners which also helped a lot as the company worked a lot with sports teams and professional clubs. However, alongside this job, I run my own sports massage business (which I'm looking to take full time). Active Valleys gave me experience in marketing, advertising and using social media which I have used to build a good client base, keep in contact with customers and form contacts with local running clubs."
Junior Sport Officer, Sport RCT
"Active Valleys allowed me to put my classroom learning into practice and gave me the opportunity to work with a number of different people and organisations such as SportRCT, Sport Caerphilly and U Design; developing long-lasting relationships."
"Active valleys helped get my name known in the world of sport for (hopefully!) all the right reasons. It gave me not only sport specific experiences, but a broad array of opportunities such as Web-design, branding and marketing."
