Making sports fun for all

November 14, 2014

A former West Cheshire College student, Jake Edwards, has returned as the College’s new Sports Maker to help encourage more people to get involved in sports.


The Sports Maker initiative was introduced following the London 2012 Olympics and aims to improve the sporting opportunities for young people.

Jake first attended West Cheshire College in 2006 when he studied a BTEC Diploma Level 3 in Sport. He then progressed to a Foundation Degree in Fitness and Health at the College before achieving a first class Masters Degree in Sport Leadership & Management at Chester University.

Jake said: “I’m delighted to be the new Sports Maker at the College. I’m really passionate about sport and looking forward to helping more and more people take an interest in sport.

“It’s great to put all my skills and experience to good use and come up with fun activities which make sport more accessible to everyone.

“I’m planning lots of activities including a 12 hour charity football match in December that all College students can take part in.”

Whilst he was studying, Jake also spent his summer holidays coaching football in America where he developed skills such as connecting with students and helping to develop their skills in the sport.

Suzie Sprules, Head of School for Sport at West Cheshire College, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jake back to the College as a member of staff.

“Jake is highly qualified and has gained some excellent experience which will be invaluable in his new role. His vast range of qualifications and knowledge means that he is comfortable working with both tutors and students to enhance their involvement in sport.”
