The creation of the Burnley FC Shadow Youth Team Squad and a Burnley FC Coaching Academy will provide young males (currently in Year 11) with the opportunity to participate in either a playing or coaching strand while completing a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport Performance, Coaching and Fitness alongside their practical studies. The two year course based at Nelson & Colne College will provide students with a natural route into higher education for courses such as foundation degrees and honours degrees in sport related disciplines, there are also opportunities to progress into employment in areas such as sports coaching, sports development, leisure management, coaching and instructing of specialist disciplines.
Students aiming to secure a place on this course will need to be current Year 11 students and will be required to gain 5 GCSEs Grade A* to C (including 3 from Maths, English, Science and PE) or a merit grade on a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sport.
