Date Posted: 20/01/2015 | Posted In: Latest news

Beth Donaldson, a student at QE, has won a place on the National Association of Colleges (AoC) Sport National Youth Council. Competition for places is extremely high and Beth continues a fine and long tradition of QE representation on the Council.

Beth, who is Secretary of QE’s renowned Student Sport Management Team, says:

‘The 2015 programme will involve me in planning and leading events at well-known venues such as the annual Festival and College Sport Week at the National Football Centre, St George’s Park, as well as the AoC Sport National Championships at Bath University. I will have the chance to make a real difference in a range of sports both locally and nationally and there’ll  be the opportunity to impact on decision-making in sport in Further Education and.  Overall, the programme is giving college students a voice and providing exciting opportunities for personal development.’

The first meeting of the Council will be held at St George’s Park in early February.

Beth further comments:

‘I am looking forward to attending my first meeting and getting involved with the opportunities on offer and challenging myself in this new situation. I am very pleased and honoured to have been selected.’

Beth lives in Trimdon and is an ex pupil of Sedgefield Community College. At QE she is studying A level PE, Law and Psychology and in the autumn will go to university to read Law.
