Everton in the Community is committed to providing educational opportunities to help young people achieve academic success.
The charity runs a Level 3 BTEC Extended National Diploma in Sport, which is a two-year full-time programme allowing students to achieve first class qualifications via vocational learning, while also gaining valuable practical experience relating to the sport and leisure industry.
The course boasts a 100 per cent pass rate and is the equivalent of three A-Levels.
Students complete 19 modules, which cover a range of different subjects including coaching, physiology, sociology, nutrition and performance analysis. In addition, students are able to gain a Level 1 FA Certificate in Coaching as well as the FA Emergency First Aid and FA Safeguarding Children in Football Awards.
There is a mixed course delivered at Childwall Sports and Science College and a girls-only course at St Julie's Catholic High School in Woolton.
Both courses also allow students to compete in a competitive weekly football league.
Students require dedication and commitment and need at least five GCSE's between A-C to gain entry onto the course, which is the same standard as A-Levels.
If you are aged between 16 and 18 and are considering a career in sport then why not call 0151 737 4958 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about this unique football focused course.
