Event will take place at the training ground on 7th AprilFleetwood Town Community Trust’s Football Education Programme will be holding an open evening at Poolfoot Farm on Thursday 7th April at 6.30pm.
The evening is aimed at current year 11’s in local schools as well as parents, and is the perfect opportunity to view the state of the art educational facilities where students will learn and progress.
Students and parents will gain a flavour of the educational and sporting facilities available which will contribute to their studies over the course of the two year programme.
Once completed, students will leave the programme with a Level 3 BTEC National Extended Diploma in Sport, the equivalent of up to three A Levels.
Other opportunities available to students will be practical work experience linked to the football club as well as an FA Level 1 coaching qualification.
Director of Community, Matt Hilton, said: “We’re excited about the opening of the new training base in Thornton which will enable us as a Trust to expand our education programme.
“We are committed to providing high quality educational provision in order to ensure that our learners have the ideal pathway to progress to university and employment or further training.”
