We use young people’s interest in sport to engage them in learning and earn qualifications.
We offer young people a practical, sports-based education programme where they can complete various sports-based qualifications. These include a:
- AQA Award: young people have the opportunity to earn an accredited vocational qualification if they have progressed through our Training with the Champions programme and demonstrated the knowledge they have learnt around psychology.
- ASDAN Qualification: we support young people to complete the ASDAN Sports and Fitness Course. Students complete various assignments, including participation in weekly non-contact boxing sessions and sports-based written assignment, such as creating a profile of a sportsperson they admire.
- BTEC Diploma in Sport: in collaboration with local football club, Bristol Rovers, we deliver a BTEC Level 3 for young people with an interest in working in the sports industry. The course combines academic studies with a sporting experience.
We also embed informal education support into our other programmes.We focus on supporting young people to improve their functional skills. For example, during boxing sessions, we use fun exercises related to boxing or other sports to help young people to improve their literacy and numeracy.
