This passion has led to ongoing employment as a Sports Development Officer.

“Jarrod is really interested in sport, and you can tell when talking to him that he spends a lot of time reading about the industry.

“As a result, he was able to lead a lot of discussions and complete high-quality work,” says Course Leader Sam Duncan.

Compelled to join Holmesglen after attending an Open Day, Jarrod says he is a proud member of the Holmesglen community and enjoyed the strong connections he shared with his teachers.
