Sports coach Ellie Wheeldon-Jones is planning to go to Australia to teach swimming after successfully completing a foundation degree course in sports coaching at Derby College. Ellie, who has always been sporty, would like to travel and take a break from studying before deciding whether or not to take a third-year top up degree course. Like her sister Sophie, who is now a personal trainer, and her boyfriend Mykylo, a semi-professional cricketer, Ellie initially took the BTEC sports sciences course at Derby College after leaving school following GCSEs.She then went on to take her foundation degree at Broomfield Hall and is currently working as a children's swimming coach as well as teaching tampolining to adults.
Ellie said: "One of the best things about the foundation degree course was the amount of one-to-one attention you receive. Our groups were small so the lecturers had more time to dedicate to you. It was hard work but I enjoyed it and felt very comfortable at Broomfield."
Ellie has participated in many sports including gymnastics, athletics and running during and since her schooldays. She has also swum at county level.
