It's the start of a brand new year and you're about to spend the next six months studying for your GCSE's, but you're unsure of what to do once it's all over.
You're interested in starting your career in the sports industry but where do you go to gain some of the most unique experiences that other post-16 students could only dream of?
Bristol Rovers Community Trust are opening their doors to year 11 students and their parents this month, for an opportunity to find out more about the BTEC Level 3 in Sport that they offer to 16-18 year old's. The course 'which is the equivalent to three A-Levels' gives our students the opportunity to train like a professional footballer every day, represent Bristol Rovers in the EFL Trust Futsal League every week and offer excellent opportunities that other organisations can't provide.
On Thursday 24th January at The Memorial Stadium, you will be able to meet the education team and find out what modules you will be studying throughout the two year course. We boast a 100% pass rate with many of our graduates moving onto further education and employment in the sports industry after successfully completing their BTEC with Bristol Rovers, so the opportunities and support is there for each of our students.
But what if you're main sporting interest is boxing? Then we have the answer for you. We've teamed up 'Empire Fighting Chance' who are an award-winning, Bristolbased charity who enable young people to fulfill their potential by raising aspiration and self-confidence to make better and informed life choices. On Thursday 17th January at Empire Fighting Chance (The Mill, Lower Ashley Rd, Bristol BS5 0YJ) you will have the opportunity to visit the Bristol Boxing Gym and find out what the BTEC course can offer you.
