The Community Sports College will be hosting an open day on Friday evening at 6pm, which will be based at Poolfoot Farm.
Over the past four years, over 60 students have been on the course, with the new Community Sports College building on the success of previous years, whilst providing a pathway of education delivered by the Community Trust.
The Community Trust are looking to provide a pathway; offering traineeships in employability, Level 2 and 3 BTEC awards in Sport to school leavers, followed by foundation degree’s in relevant sporting areas such as sports business and sports coaching.
The BTEC programme has grown year-on-year with the past year being the most successful yet, with the students crowned National Champions in Futsal, and winning the North West 11-a-side league.
More importantly though is the classroom success. Having 100% of students complete and pass the course, and 85% achieving on or way above their initial target grade, and 71% progressing onto universities such as Loughborough, Manchester, Edge Hill and Lancaster.
The Community Sports College will allow us to build on this success and grow our education provision further. Expanding our offer to encompass a further and higher education pathway into the sport and leisure industry for local students in the Wyre and Fylde community.
This will offer unique opportunities for ambitious football fans to represent and learn at Fleetwood Town, gain unique work experience opportunities within the football club and to gain industry recognized coaching qualifications. Which will all help towards gaining university places, scholarships abroad and employment in the industry.
Further opening days have been scheduled and you can find all the information below:

We look forward to seeing you all there on the evening! #OnwardTogether
