Trust launch new post-16 programme in central Bristol

Bristol City Community Trust are pleased to announce the launch of a new BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport programme to be held at City Academy.

The two-year course - which is set to start in September 2019 and will be ran in partnership with Cabot Learning Federation - offers an exciting opportunity for post-16 students of all footballing abilities to develop their knowledge of the sporting industry and gain practical skills preparing them for employment in the industry after their studies.

Alongside the academic element of the course, students will engage in futsal training and matches on a weekly basis, representing Bristol City Football Club against other professional clubs in competitive fixtures in the EFL Trust Futsal League.

Based at City Academy School, students will study in purpose-built classrooms and facilities with access to opportunities as Ashton Gate Stadium.

National and international tours are also an integral part of the course. The Trust provides opportunities for students to visit world-famous stadia, including the likes of The Emirates (Arsenal), The Etihad (Manchester City) and White Hart Lane (Tottenham Hotspur).

Each year also sees students train and play abroad, with recent trips including visits to Croatia, Portugal, France and Germany. These trips are optional but act as aspiration opportunities for students to engage and learn from.

The Trust are extremely committed to enhancing students’ employability skills, which is why students who enrol on to this course have access to valuable work experience in community or academy projects.

This opportunity allows students to enhance their delivery and CV accordingly, which can assist them in getting a head start in their career path.
