The Foundation’s innovative new training course kicks off to a great start

Working in partnership with Virtual Learning UK (VLUK), the Foundation has begun delivering their great new Traineeships programme and it’s off to a flying start.

The course is aimed at men and women aged between 16-24 years old and focuses on multiple different learning outcomes throughout the various sessions being delivered.

The students work towards achieving qualifications throughout the 12 week programme with the main focus being on employability skills; work experience; support with English and Maths; the principles of coaching sport (Level 2); and also a NGB qualification in coaching football.

Students are attending the 12-week programme on a full-time basis during which the Foundation and VLUK provide a small bursary to assist with transport costs. Once students have completed the course, they will receive a Level 2 award in the principles of coaching sport. So far the course is off to a great start and the Foundation is seeing large numbers getting involved within the programme. The programme still has places available, however numbers are becoming very limited due to an overwhelming response of participants after the launch.

Extended Services lead Chris McNally is delighted with the response there has been towards the traineeships programme and said:

“The Traineeships programme provides a fantastic opportunity for students across the Fylde Coast.  As well as being an interesting and educational 12 week course, the students will finish their time with us better equipped and with a far greater understanding of the industry, whilst also having achieved recognised and respected qualifications to enable them to go on to better things”.
