Community Trust to host Education Open Evening

Bristol City Community Trust will host an education open evening at Ashton Gate tonight (7pm) ahead of the new academic year.

Through its continual growth in strength and capacity, the Trust now has the appropriate sport structure to enable students to develop life skills, maximise career choices and opportunities through carefully designed qualifications, no matter what their academic or practical level.

Such a structure sees the Trust attract and accept a variety of students on to any of the four post-16 courses:

- Level 2 Diploma in Football in Community Settings
- Boys BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Futsal Pathway)
- Girls BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Futsal Pathway)
- LTA BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Tennis)

Each of the programmes give students the opportunity to complete additional qualifications, allowing further experience to be gained within their preferred field, whilst studying at the Trust.

The courses are predominantly marked through coursework, however, practical elements will be incorporated, giving students the opportunity to put into practice what they have learnt within their studies.

A typical day will run from 9am-1pm, where students will cover a range of units, ranging from Anatomy and Physiology through to Business in Sport, within the purpose-built classrooms at Ashton Gate.

Once the lessons have finished, students will typically train in their respective sport from 1.30pm-3pm three times a week, delivered by their lecturers, all of who are qualified coaches.

On completion of the each course, students will have the qualifications to attend university and study a range of subjects. Meanwhile, former students have also gone to America on scholarships, while others have opted for apprenticeships in various industries.

During the students’ time on their respective course, the Community Trust aims to improve them academically, socially and personally. The students are given continuous support to ensure they achieve their target grades and excel in all areas.

For more information on each of the programmes delivered by the Trust, attend the upcoming education open evening. Reserve your place by contacting 0117 963 0636 or e-mail emily.cleaves@bcfc.co.uk.

Remember, no matter what grades you have achieve in GCSEs, the Trust has a course for you.

The Trust also delivers two degree level programmes, for more information click here.
