Students deliver professional seminars

BSc (Hons) Physical Activity, Health and Exercise students from Barnsley College have been delivering professional seminars for their final-year module ‘Special Populations and Physical Activity’.

Students looked at how physical activity can help a range of different people, including young males with depression, young females, older adults and obese people. They delivered their findings to a host of industry experts from Yorkshire Sport, Public Health Barnsley, NHS Barnsley, Tom Talks, Mind Over Matter Foundation, Jake Bellamy Personal Trainer and James Ritchie Training.

Enzo Guarini, Sports Tutor, said: “Throughout the run-up to the seminars students have been exploring the physical activity intervention strategies and policies, how it impacts special populations and shapes the way we experience life.

“The seminars allowed industry professionals to view the incredible work developed by our students and offers an opportunity to engage and discuss their work, offer support and guidance and be part of a community.”
