LEVEL 3 MEN'S ARTISTIC
By the end of March 2016 I took all Technical Modules at the Europa Gymnastics Centre in Dartford, and passed the practical assessment (post-course technical sign-off by the BG recognised assessor, Simon Moore, who is an International Men’s Artistic Brevet Judge) for each of the modules at the Sutton Gymnastics Academy in London.
On 3 and 4 September 2016, I took the Level 3 coaching theory at Heathrow Gymnastics Club in London. At the end of 2018, I submitted my portfolio with all required tasks to British Gymnastics, and after an interview with my BG recognised assessor (Julia Jones), I officially completed my Level 3.
