Pompey in the Community (PitC) are offering a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (football education programme) in partnership with Highbury College.
The two-year course is suitable for male and female students (over 16) who are keen to develop an insight into opportunities within the sports industry.
Base at the Pompey Study Centre – with elements at Fratton Park and Highbury College – participants will use purpose-built classrooms and facilities, creating a perfect learning environment in which to thrive.
Alongside their academic studies, students will train and play on a weekly basis, representing Pompey against other professional clubs in competitive fixtures – another unique aspect of the course.
National and international trips are also an integral part, with PitC providing the chance to visit world famous stadia and high-profile organisations.
Students train and play abroad each year, with recent tours taking place in the Netherlands and USA. They are optional, but provide a chance to learn and engage.
PitC are extremely passionate about enhancing the employability skills of students, which is why they have access to work experience within the organisation.
Open trials will be held at the University of Portsmouth site at Furze Lane (PO4 8LW) at the following times:
Friday, January 4 (9.30am-11.30am)
Friday, January 4 (12pm-2pm)
