As part of our post-16 education provision, students get the opportunity to study a full time education programme in the unique setting of a professional football club.
It doesn’t matter what qualifications you have – we have a course for you.
The Education team are holding a ‘pre-sign up’ event on Tuesday 25thJune at Blackpool FC Community Trust Office, Bloomfield Road between 5pm – 7pm. During this time, you will have the opportunity to sign up to any of our courses, speak to our staff and get more of an insight into what we can offer you.
Courses we have available are: BTEC Sport Level 1, 2 and 3, Foundation Degree in Community Football Coaching and Development, BSc Degree in Community Football Coaching and Development.
A parent whose sons currently attend had this to say:
“Our two sons have both studied at Blackpool FC Community Trust since leaving School and we can’t recommend the place highly enough. Jack studied for a two year BTEC in Sports Coaching and has now finished his second year of a degree course, also undertaken at the Trust. Robert has just completed his BTEC course and is now going on to a Degree course in Sports Science at UCLAN. As an alternative to purely academic courses at college following school, the Community Trust offers a great way to learn Sports based subjects which include hands on working environment experience. Our experience is that the Trust promotes a sense of responsibility in its students and rewards effort and self reliance which has been a great benefit to both our sons. Rather than a Teacher / Pupil relationship of the School classroom, the Trust tutors encourage a more adult, collaborative relationship where the pupil is encouraged to think for themselves in order to progress on their chosen course. In summary, the Trust has provided our two sons with an excellent post school education and has prepared them for the move into the worlds of University Education and work.”
