Many of the initiatives we deliver are directly funded through partner organisations and grant-awarding bodies. Some of these include The Premier League; the EFL Trust; The PFA; Sport England; Big Lottery; The Football Foundation; NHS Blackpool CCG and Blackpool Council to name a few.
The Trust works to support local needs and by linking with local partners they can increase their impact on our town. BFCCT receive in-kind support from several local agencies which has proved a great benefit and should not go unrecognised. Working with so many organisations has allowed the Trust to become a vital strategic partner in activity provision across Blackpool and the Fylde Coast.
Providing full time education for Year 10 and 11 students who require an alternative to mainstream education. We work with Blackpool Council, Educational Diversity and numerous local high schools to provide the students with traditional Maths, English, and Science subjects to GCSE level, whilst also completing project-based learning and BTEC Sports.
Studying at Blackpool FC Sports College gives students the unique opportunity to learn within the largest sports organisation in Blackpool. This means students can speak to, and gain experience from, professionals currently working in the sport, fitness, and leisure sector.
In addition to the wealth of programmes out in the community and local schools, BFCCT provides full-time education offers, from BTEC Sport courses to Foundation and Top Up Degree courses, all based at Bloomfield Road Stadium.
