FITC Girls' Scholarship

11 March 2013

SWINDON Town Football in the Community Trust are looking to fill the remaining few places on their Education Scholarship Programme for girls.

After the boys’ course received such a positive response and looks to have been filled for the September 2013 start, the Community Trust are now switching their focus to the girls’ course and time is running out to book your place with a number of applications already in to the FITC offices! 

There are only six places remaining available for the girls course which includes a Level 3 BTEC in Sport along with daily training sessions, regional competitions and a comprehensive work experience programme. 

The BTEC in Sport is the equivalent to three A Levels and focuses on all aspects of Sport Science and the Sports Industry which offers students the ideal foundation for progressing into a wide range of jobs within sport. In addition to the learning that takes places in the classroom, there are daily training sessions that culminate in weekly fixtures against other clubs running the programme with the current scholars playing regularly against Cardiff, Exeter, Reading, Swansea and many others from around the country.
 
With the difficult job market in mind, Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust have devised an innovative work experience programme that looks to give the scholars a head start when they leave the course after the second year. If the scholars choose to enter employment instead of progressing on to university, they will have a whole two years of weekly work experience under their belts within the wide range of coaching opportunities the Community Trust offer. All scholars will complete their Level 1 Certificate in Football Coaching with the option of progressing to the Level 2 Certificate along with a range of other coaching workshops that can be offered. 

This course is open to all girls with an interest in football who wish to complete a BTEC in Sport with a view to progressing into the sports industry. If you are interested in applying or wish to know more about the course please contact Adam Tribbick or Luke Sharps in the Community Trust office on (01793) 421303 or email adam@stfc-fitc.co.uk.
