We catch up with 2019 BTEC L3 Sport (Outdoor Adventure) graduate, Alisha Thomas as she explains how the qualifications she gained at Rockley College led to her becoming Physiotherapist.

Alisha joined Rockley in 2017 to study Level 3 BTEC Sport (Outdoor Adventure) from Queen Elizabeth’s School. Alisha achieved triple star distinction and gained the following qualifications: RYA Dinghy Instructor, RYA Powerboat level 2, In-house Kayaking, RYA First Aid, Start Windsurfing and Sailing with Spinnakers.

After graduating from Rockley College, Alisha went on work a season at Rockley’s Le Lac Mimizan centre in south west France where she continued her passion for watersports. Following her season, she completed a distance learning course which included biology and psychology - this allowed her to follow her dream of going to university and becoming a Physiotherapist. 

 

The grades Alisha achieved at Rockley gave her the qualifications she needed to pursue her career ambitions. Along with these work achievements, throughout her time on the course, she gained the confidence, knowledge and skills to teach young children as a fully qualified RYA Dinghy Instructor. 

“Rockley has given me so many life-changing experiences and opportunities. As well as learning to sail and windsurf I have made life-long friends and have shared some amazing, unforgettable memories.”
