The Minister for Education for Wales, Kirsty Williams AM met learners from the Foundation’s Future Pathways Education Programmes on Monday 16th September, to find out more about the Foundation's alternative education offer.

Hearing from the learners themselves, the Minister for Education was given an insight into the unique and exciting programme that caters for young people aged 16-19 and the benefits of combining studying alongside sport.

The Future Pathways Programme's Student Council cherished the opportunity to share their views on the importance of alternative education pathways, as well as discussing key topics surrounding the future of education in Wales.

Speaking at the event, Kirsty Williams AM said:

I have been extremely impressed to see the excellent work that Cardiff City FC Foundation is carrying out within the local community, providing good quality education and training, as well as sporting, opportunities for young people.

One of the key purposes of our new curriculum in Wales is to help learners develop as healthy and confident individuals, ready to lead life to the full and be valued by those around them. Cardiff City FC Foundation’s work fully supports this aim.

Last year, 100% of our learners completed their BTEC Level 3 qualification, with 81% of students studying on any of our Future Pathways Programmes attaining their course qualification.

Our Future Pathways Education Programmes are still recruiting for the 2019/20 academic year.
