If you choose one of our sports academies (Rugby or Football) you’ll study for a Level 3 qualification in Sport alongside your sports training.

You will study with professional coaches and could be talent spotted for a professional contract.

As well as studying for a recognised qualification you’ll also have the opportunity to gain coaching awards, so you can coach locally, nationally or even internationally.

Put your coaching into practice by delivering sports sessions to local schools and the local community.

You'll need at least 4 GCESs at grade 4 (C) or above to join the course.

A wide range of work experience opportunities are available. For example you could help with sports coaching within primary schools.

On completion of the Level 3 course, you could launch your career in the sports industry or progress to university.

Where it can lead to

There are number of routes you can take following successful completion of a course. Further study can include Higher Education courses or a Higher Apprenticeship where you will expand your skills through study whilst earning a wage. Or you may choose to move directly into employment.
