Laura Ellis – Partnership Manager

Laura left university in 2005 with a degree in Coaching and Sports Development, her first roles in sport and education were Head of Recreational Gymnastics and working part-time at Manchester Metropolitan University as an Associate Lecturer for Sports Coaching.

From this, Laura then moved full-time into higher education taking a role at MMU as Lecturer and a year later moved to Leeds Beckett University progressing to Senior Lecturer. An exciting opportunity arose in 2013 when Leeds Gymnastics Club set up as a CIC and Laura was asked to be Head of Recreational Gymnastics, setting up their recreational programme growing membership to 800+ gymnasts and establishing a coaching team.

Further to these roles Laura has worked in commercial education as a Tutor for L2 Fitness Instructor, L3 Personal Training, and other fitness CPD courses.

Away from her career, Laura has spent a great deal of time coaching, judging, and volunteering in gymnastics. Laura has officiated at a number of British level events and has been fortunate enough to take up the role as Press Centre Officer at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships 2009 and Longines Scorer at the World Tumbling, Trampolining & DMT Championships in 2011.
