Success story - Clarissa Kennedy

We catch up with 2019 BTEC L3 Sport (Outdoor Adventure) graduate, Clarissa Kennedy

Body Image

Clarissa joined Rockley in 2017 to study Level 3 BTEC Sport Outdoor Adventure from Avonbourne College. Clarissa achieved D*D*D* and gained the following RYA qualifications; dinghy and windsurfing instructor, RYA powerboat Level 2, in-house kayaking and RYA first aid certificate. 

After graduating Clarissa went on to work a full season with Rockley at their Le Lac Mimizan centre in France. She thoroughly enjoyed this experience which allowed her to develop and grow more as an instructor as well as develop her skills on the water. Following her season in France, Clarissa joined the indoor rock climbing company, Rock Reef on Bournemouth Pier where she has continued to develop and share her passion for the outdoors and teaching youngsters.

 

Clarissa hopes to go to Plymouth Marjon university this September to study Sports Coaching and Physical Education. Her dream is to become a PE teacher and continue to teach and inspire young people. While studying at university, during the summer she plans to work abroad teaching windsurfing and sailing. 

Rockley has really helped Clarissa improve her confidence while developing a range of new personal and practical skills. The experience has been both hugely challenging and rewarding. She has also gained long-life friends and found an exciting career path which she wishes to continue in the future.
