Black History Month has once again been observed throughout the UK, promoting and celebrating black history and heritage in our communities...
As we embark upon a new academic year, our tutors welcomed Future Pathways Post-16 Education students back to Cardiff City House of Sport.
170 students have signed up for our post-16 education and training programmes. This week students took part in team-building exercises, theory-based lessons, practical futsal sessions and explored potential careers in sport with the help of our tutors.
After a disruptive 18 months, students and tutors alike were delighted to return to in-person education full-time.
Grace, a student on our BTEC Level 3 course said:
"It's been pretty amazing being back with everyone, full time and with normal sized classes again.
"I'm going to be working with my tutors to fill in my UCAS applications to apply for university and study paramedic science."
Students returned to the courts and the classrooms
Matthew Pugh, Post-16 Education Coordinator at the Foundation said:
"There’s been real energy about the House of Sport this week. It’s been great to see so many smiling faces.
"Our students have demonstrated a positive attitude to learning and we’re looking forward to working together."
Over the next year, we will continue to provide students with the opportunity to study and represent Cardiff City FC and progress into further education and employment opportunities.
