After graduating from the Academy for Physical Education (ALO) in 2008, Thilo Varenhout started teaching at the AUAS in 2009. Fun fact: as a 23-year-old lecturer, students were sometimes older than Thilo. Fortunately, this was no problem at all.

Head for Business

Thilo started as a lecturer in the Business Economics bachelor programme where he gave the sports lessons. In these lessons he taught students competences such as cooperation, leadership and communication, and he helped to increase the mutual bond in the group. In addition, Thilo worked as an internship supervisor and coach.

He combined his teaching job with a master's degree in Psychomotor therapy (PMT). After graduating in 2018, Thilo gave therapy to children and adolescents with psychological and social-emotional problems for a number of years.

Heart for Sports

In 2021, he made the switch within the AUAS to Sportkunde - leerroute SM&O and Sportkunde - track ISMB. There he teaches coaching, team sports, endurance sports, Management Skills Training (MVT) and Sport & Health. Thilo is an all-rounder when it comes to sports. He started as a football player and slowly made the move to triathlon. After that, he immersed himself in climbing, golf, surfing, mountain biking and snowboarding. In short, he is a real sports lover.
