Student In The Spotlight: James Woodhouse

Sheffield United Community Foundation’s Education & Training department has over 140 students studying with us on our BTEC Sport Football & Education programme for both men and women.

As part of our ‘Student in the spotlight’ series, we have spoken to our students to see what they think about our programme and their tutors. This week we have spoken to men’s BTEC sport student James Woodhouse. James is in year 13 and is currently taught by tutor Liam Tongue.
