Success story

Georgie Lingham

Sport - Personal Training

Georgie is currently studying Level 3 Personal Training at CWA, having previously completed courses in uniformed services and fitness instruction.

“I have always been interested in the fitness side of sport and want to become a personal trainer so that I can help others. CWA was my first choice for further education as I knew that the campus facilities were excellent.”

Georgie has always been an avid rugby player. In 2017, she was recognised as the Eastern Counties women’s rugby team Player of the Year, and has since become a member of Saracens Women’s Rugby club.

“The college helped me to achieve something I really enjoy and have a future with.”
