    Education Experiences for Students

    GCP has partnered with the team at Oriam to deliver applied experience days from Scotland’s National Performance Centre, Oriam.

    These experience days are aimed at Students from Schools, Colleges and Universities from across Scotland. The use of the elite sports performance facilities at Oriam allows us to deliver applied sport science experience days for Students of all levels and disciplines.

    We offer two immersive experiences for students. A full day focused on ‘Intensive Rehab and Conditioning in elite sport” experience and a half day ‘Introduction to Elite Sport Science’ experience.

    On both experiences students have the opportunity to undertake a range of contemporary methods of data collection relating to the physical capability of an athlete using equipment and facilities commonly employed in elite sporting environments.

    Nairn Scobie – Sports & Exercise Science Lecturer, University of Glasgow
    "Thanks for arranging the experience day at Oriam for our year 2 pupils. We found it highly beneficial to get them out together as group into an elite facility. The pupils took a lot away from the day and found it extremely useful"

    Neil Gibson – Performance Director, Oriam
    "Oriam have partnered with GCP to run a range of education experiences for students across Scotland. Having experienced the different days that GCP run from St.George's Park, we felt they were the ideal partner for Oriam to launch a similar service. We are excited to the launch in September 2019"!
