Children stimulate the frontal lobe through movement, which increases their cognitive functions with regards to thought and behavior. Furthermore, efforts to maintain an independent lifestyle - without the need to depend on healthcare for everyday life - have become more recognized, as have increased exercise habits aimed at maintaining core bodily functions among the elderly. This means that sports have long become far more than just the domains of athletes: they are essential for all of us, no matter what age, to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The trends outlined have been picked up by industry as well, as our 100% employment rate for the first wave of new graduates underlines. This is due to the ability to obtain a wide variety of qualifications, one of the major strengths of our program.
