If you are receiving your GCSE results this week but are uncertain on what to do next, have you considered Bristol City Community Trust’s education courses?

Through its continual growth in strength and capacity, the Trust has the appropriate supportive structure to enable learners to develop life skills, maximise career choices and opportunities through carefully designed qualifications, support and activities.

Such a structure sees the Trust attract and accept a diverse range of students on to its exciting post-16 courses, which combines academic studies with a sporting experience.

With each course based at Ashton Gate stadium, where purpose-built classroom and facilities are evident, the Trust’s culture of valuing education is bolstered by the learning environment. This assists in inspiring a positive attitude to drive education, personal and social progress, without the fear of failure.

The Trust’s ability, passion and drive to deliver the highest level of education to individuals wanting to enhance their quality of life, assists in positive levels of success attained through personalised learning.

In addition to the compulsory course requirements, the Trust provides students with a variety of extra-curricular activities including various work experience opportunities, to further their academic progress and enhance desired life skills.

All of the above factors contribute to what is a fantastic and unique educational experience for prospective students looking to kick-start their career within the sports industry.
