Further your education with the Community Trust

Bristol City Community Trust will host an education open evening next month as they start to accept applications for the 2019/20 academic year.

Having recently enrolled over 100 new students on to this year’s courses, following A-level and GCSE results day, the Trust will begin its recruitment process with an open evening on Monday, October 8th (7pm).

The club’s official charity has continually developed in strength and capacity, and now has the appropriate sport structure to enable learners to develop life skills, maximise career choices and opportunities through carefully designed qualifications, no matter what their academic or practical level.

Subsequently, the Trust offers the following courses, which range from post-16 to degree level.

  • BA Hons Sports Business and Entrepreneurship (University of the West of England)
  • Fnd in Community Sports Coaching and Development (University of South Wales)
  • Fnd in Community Football Coaching and Development (University of South Wales)
  • BTEC Level 3 in Sport – Boys Futsal Programme (Ashton Park School)
  • BTEC Level 3 in Sport – Girls Futsal Programme (Ashton Park School)
  • BTEC Level 3 in Sport – Tennis Coaching Scholarship (Ashton Park School)
  • BTEC Level 3 in Sport and Creative Media (Boomsatsuma and Cabot Learning Federation)
  • BTEC Level 3 in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship
  • BTEC Level 3 in Sport – Boys and Girls Football Programme (Merchants Academy)
  • BTEC Level 2 in Sport – Boys and Girls Football Coaching Programme (Bridgwater and Taunton College)

The open evening will commence at 7pm and includes a welcome talk from the head of education Chris Stenner, followed by a detailed presentation on each course.

Prospective students will then have the chance to talk to the sports lecturers on a one-to-one basis, answering any further questions they may have.

Each course, whether it be delivered off-site or at Ashton Gate, will have purpose-built facilities available, meaning the programmes provide a unique opportunity for students to kick-start their career in the sports industry.

Once the respective courses draw to a close, a number of exit routes are available, with the most common being university, job opportunities, American scholarships and apprenticeships.

Each of the available programmes prove extremely popular so if you’re wanting to attend the open evening, email or call 0117 963 0636.
