    Hi guys,

    I left college after my first year (it just wasn't for me) and began working in retail, i'm now 21 and am currently on a level 3 management apprenticeship in the hope of finally gaining my A Levels.
    I've always enjoyed retail, however after almost 6 years of it, I've realised I have no passion for it any more and would love to get into sports and preferably coaching children/ PE teacher that sort of thing. I own my own home and have two little pooches and two horses so as you can imagine I'm not in the position where I can just pack up and go to uni or give up my job to start a training course... I have no problem paying for courses, i'm just looking for a starting point so I can hopefully start training for the job I really want.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated

    Have you thought of the Open University? They have a BSc (Honours) degree in Sport, Fitness and Coaching

    Where do you live? Might be worth emailing local uni's to see if they would accept you.
