ARGYLE Community Trust are now recruiting for the Post-16 Football Education programme delivered in partnership with King Edward VI Community College (KEVICC) in Totnes.
Students are being given the chance to enrol on this course at KEVICC from September 2017, gaining a unique insight into the inner working of a professional football club, while earning a qualification that can see them progress to Higher Education or employment in the sports industry.
Argyle Community Trust and KEVICC are looking for young players of school-leaving age with a passion to play football at a high level to take academic studies under the guidance of Plymouth Argyle, whilst at the same time honing their footballing talents.
The programme sees 16-18 years olds participate in a number of academic studies alongside a football scholarship run by Plymouth Argyle. The programme is designed to give people excellent academic qualifications that can take them into universities, overseas universities, employment and work places.
In addition to this, the programme provides talented and enthusiastic youngsters with the opportunity to train and play as a football scholar in tandem with their academic studies.
Previous scholars have progressed into the professional game, climbed the football pyramid and also gone overseas, whilst others have improved on their football ability and continue to play at a high standard in local football.
If you are interested in applying for this course or would like more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and go to the KEVICC website to peruse the online Sixth form prospectus. www.kingedwardvi.devon.sch.uk
