18+ Foundation Programme

The Course

We have partnered with the University of South Wales (USW) to provide students the opportunity to either stay at the college after completing their BTEC course, or for the local community to enhance their qualifications.  This course is offered to anyone over 18 who wants to fulfil a career within the Sports industry.

This course will be delivered by lectures, seminars and tutorials delivered onsite at Poolfoot Farm. The course will teach you aspects of sports coaching, sports development, social inclusion, sports management skills and sports science. There will be further opportunity to apply your knowledge with an extensive work based learning programme which will be provided by the Community Trust.

As part of this course each year you will spend 2 weeks at the USW campus in Cardiff to attend assessment periods.  Travel and accommodation will be included within your course. Please note that these dates are mandatory and the dates will be provided to you on enrolment.
