Mansfield Town Football in the Community are delighted to announce that one hundred per-cent of year 13 students who applied for a place at university or higher education have been accepted onto their first choice.
The news comes as our ‘Footsteps Education’ program nears its competition of the 2018/19 academic year, and we continue to seek students for September.
Elizabeth Regan, Education Officer, said “I’m absolutely thrilled that our year 13 students have been accepted onto their preferred choice of University or Higher Education – they’ve really progressed through the system and I’m sure if they apply themselves in the same way – they’ll continue to thrive.
“Here at Football in the Community we take immense pride in creating pathways for our students, our Education Program is called ‘Footsteps’ for a reason – because every single student who comes through our door is taking the step to something bigger and better.”
In addition to the Year 13 Students about to progress onto the next stage of their journey, students from Year 12 were given a taste of university last week, with an open day at Vision West Nottinghamshire College’s University Centre
“It is really important that throughout a student’s time with us that we show them the options on offer to them in the future. Visits to University Open days and talks from lecturers are vital – as are the first-hand experiences in coaching which we offer, there’s no better way of learning on the job.
“Our students see every day what pathways are open for them when they see the trio of pupils from last year working on either an apprenticeship or in a full time role directly after completing their BTEC Level Three Extended Diploma in Sport – not to mention the fine example of Macauley [Short, Community Coach] who progressed through our BTEC program and has since graduated from university”
Mansfield Town Football in the Community wishes all students departing the ‘Footsteps Education’ program all the very best of luck for the future.
Places are now available for the 2019/20 academic year with an open day taking place on Thursday 4th July at the One Call Stadium, 12-2pm.
The open day will give people the opportunity to discuss more about the course with our Education Officer, as well as speak to former students about the course and participate in a 90 minute training session – giving students the opportunity to sample the type of training they’ll receive during the course.
Students must have a minimum of FOUR GCSE’s at Grade 9-4 or equivalent – register your interest here https://tinyurl.com/FITCEducation – the course can lead to students becoming a sports coach, teacher, personal trainer, physiotherapist and much more!
