Track Academy by Connie Henry is toasting the success of its multi-skills and events co-ordinator Zoe Robson, who has achieved a first in her university degree.

Robson has graduated from Brunel University with a BSc (Hons) in Sport, Health and Exercise Science (Human Performance) with Professional Development.

The 22-year-old maintained an Academic Excellence Scholarship throughout her course, for which she had to secure a first each year.

Robson took a full-time work placement at Track Academy during the third year of her studies, continuing on a part-time basis in her final year.

“I’ve always loved athletics, so Track Academy was a perfect fit for me,” said Robson.

“The academy was a really relaxed and welcoming workplace with a great atmosphere, and Connie gave me the freedom to explore what I could do.

“I started the academy’s multi-skills sessions for eight to 10-year-olds from scratch. I’ll really miss the kids.”

The keen cross country runner added: “Connie really helped me to grow and build my confidence. I went on to win a university award for best placement student.”

Robson is now preparing to train as a PE teacher, but is keen to keep in touch with her friends at Track Academy.

“What Track Academy do is fantastic; I love the way that any child can attend, becoming part of the family and being helped in so many different ways,” said Robson.

“Track Academy is at the heart of the local community and the athletes become better people as a result of training there.”

*Track Academy is a registered charity which uses sport for social change among young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Academy members are given inspiration to succeed both on and off the track.

Alongside athletics coaching, they attend education sessions to help them gain qualifications, encouraging them to carve out fulfilling lives away from negative influences.

Track Academy is partnered with the College of North West London which supports Sport for Social Change.
