"It’s a fantastic programme as it encompasses both the academic and practical aspects of sport, and enables all the young people to achieve, succeed and progress"

− Graham Rodger (Head of Scheme)

"What a fantastic opportunity this is for the scholars. Firstly to be part of a professional sports environment and gain experience from many players, top coaches and ex- pros around the club. Then secondly to further their career in the sports industry through the BTEC Extended Diploma. I wish this course was available when I left school"

− Scott Drury (Course Tutor)

"What a fantastic opportunity to improve as a Futsal player but gain a high level of qualifications at the same time. The programme really gives learners the opportunity progress in Futsal with our full time training programme. Futsal has really exploded in this country and will continue to grow, young people should take this opportunity to be part of something very exciting"

− Mark Westerby (Coach)

"I am Coming towards the end of my two years on the course and I think it’s the best experience I could of have hoped for at my age. The knowledge I have gained and support from not only the tutor but the community staff, whilst working for the scheme, has given me the opportunity to go to University come September. The Futsal side of the course is unique in itself and it’s the closest thing to being a YT with training and playing competitive matches in the league, national tournaments and Soccer AM cup"

− Nath Lambert (Scholar 2012-14)

"I did a year at the local college and I didn’t achieve what I thought I would there. I then found this course and it was the best thing I have ever done. I get to play futsal everyday which is a dream in itself and get very good grades so I can achieve my ambition of going to university to be Sports Therapist"

− Alex Hodson-Smith (Scholar 2013-15)
