Blackburn Rovers – BTEC in Sport

Using the power of football and the Blackburn Rovers brand, we deliver a BTEC in Sport at Level 1 and 3 (Extended Diploma) at Ewood Park stadium. On completion, the students will be able to continue their studies at university or go straight in to mainstream employment.

Working with mainstream and PRU schools, we have grown the number of 16 to 19-year-olds students who have benefitted from our tuition every year since the programme started, with 75 learners currently enrolled.

We helped to secure a 100% pass rate in 2017, with every student going on to higher education or employment – a great achievement considering that many students that joined our course were disenfranchised by the mainstream education system and were at serious risk of becoming NEETs without our programme.

We have supported a number of learners from the care system and have been able to support them through a difficult time and improve their opportunities in life.
