As part of the schools drive to ensure One In A Million Free School Year 10 and Year 11 students can choose from great opportunities and pathways post-school education, Kim Farrand from the Bradford City Community Foundation came into school on the 31st of January to talk about the Education Programme they provide.
On the day, 36 OIAMFS students (including boys and girls) attended the session.
Kim showed a video promoting their course and talked about all the benefits the course provides including a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports (equivalent to 3 A-Levels), regular football coaching and fitness training, play in league football, all of which opens pathways to university and sports industry careers.
At the end of the session, 23 students had put their name down to attend an open day at the Club in April 2018. Upon attending the session, Joshua Reynolds from Year 11 said, “It was really good for us to learn what the course is about and what to expect if I get in!”.
The visit represented another inspiring opportunity to inform our students as to the endless possibilities within further education and employment.
