A-Levels Results Day

Thousands of students across the nation finally found out how they did on their A-Levels today and at Blackpool FC Community Trust, we run a Foundation Degree. Blackpool FC Community Trust’s two-year Foundation Degree programme is a course designed for individuals wanting to attain a university qualification and are passionate about pursuing a career in the Sport, Leisure and football industry. Students develop the necessary skills, qualities and characteristics that are required to work within professional football club community departments or national governing bodies. Delivered in partnership with the University of South Wales, all lectures, seminars and tutorials are delivered in a supportive and inspirational club environment via online material. Alongside the academic element of the course, students will complete up to 200 hours of voluntary coaching within the community, alongside the Community Trust and academy staff, allowing the students to embed and develop the coaching techniques learnt within lectures. Through the Trust’s partnership with the University of South Wales, all students will be enrolled as a student at the university. Students will be able to access the university’s online library, blackboard and learning materials, providing them with the best possible learning platform to excel within. Senior Education Officer, Mark Whalley said: “Our Degree is the perfect opportunity for those who want to study a degree and pursue a career in sport. We offer a variety of work placements in a sporting environment to give students hands on experience and help build their CV.” To find out more and to have an information discussion, please call 01253 348691 or visit www.blackpoolfccommunitytrust.co.uk
