It is a fantastic boost for the Trust and the football club, forming part of an increasing international aspect. We are delighted to be helping these young people with their education, while also recruiting a new band of Argyle supporters.
Student Mika Knobik said: “It’s awesome to be here and improving my English, and my I.T. skills. It’s exciting to be studying at a professional football club and we have already seen some of the players in their uniforms.
“The people at Plymouth Argyle have been very nice and I love England so far. It rains a lot but it’s not cold, and we are loving the City of Plymouth.”
Trevor Lowman from the Pilgrim Centre explained more on the project: “We currently have two groups from Poland, working on their I.T. skills. The groups generally spend a month learning with us in the Argyle Community Trust.
“We offer a variety of courses, working with the vocational schools the students attend in Poland. It is part of our agreement with Tellus in Plymouth to provide vocational training and professional development in the unique environment of a professional football club.
“These current students follow on from a group of aspiring entrepreneurs from Turkey, who joined us for a course in Business development. It is another important piece in the jigsaw of the growing Argyle Community Trust.”
