Student Profile: Shane Tynan

My name is Shane Tynan I’m a student in Wicklow Youthreach studying Sports and Recreation at QQI Level 4.

The Sports and Recreation course has been very beneficial to me as I have achieved a Level 2 Swim Safety Award and a Level 1 Basic Lifesaving certificate through Irish Water Safety. The course has also helped me gain a better understanding of the human body in relation to health, fitness, exercise and the body’s nutritional needs.

Through the work experience module I have be able to get a part time job in a small but growing business who produce raw cool slow pressed juice and other health products. This has been a huge benefit to me in studying a Food and Nutrition module as part of my course.

I am hoping to achieve my full QQI award with a distinction profile and progress on to a Level 5 course in the Sports area. Following on from this my aim is to achieve a QQI level 6 award in Sports, Recreation & Exercise and an ITEC diploma in Personal Training.
