Are you considering your further education options and interested in studying sport at your local football club? Then Doncaster Rovers could have the course for you.

Club Doncaster Education Foundation offers full time BTEC Sport courses at Levels 2 and 3 where students will obtain valuable skills for gaining employment or a pathway to university.

You can study at the Education Centre’s state of the art classrooms and on the Soccer Centre’s 3G astro-turf pitches.

However ONLY 2 PLACES REMAIN to study BTEC Sport Level 3 so act fast!

Former BTEC Sport Level 3 student Luke Reynolds said: "Doncaster Rovers Education Foundation have a great set of staff who are always helpful and supportive with the course.  It's amazing working with coaches and waking up and putting the Doncaster Rovers badge on.

“The course has been a life changing experience for me and I really believe that I can now progress my career because of the great opportunities studying here has given me."

The Level 3 programme gives students the opportunity to gain up to 420 UCAS points and many graduates have gone on to gain employment in a wide range of jobs within the sports and leisure industry whilst other participants are now studying at universities throughout the UK and even in the USA.

The Education Foundation oversaw 170 learners through a range of nationally recognised qualifications in 2012 alone, and has picked up prestigious awards for excellence in education.

Course Leader Adrian Turnpenny added: "For anyone interested in studying sports courses there is no better place to do so than at a professional sports club. Here at Doncaster Rovers we have superb facilities for both academic and practical sessions.  We have enjoyed great success in our five year existence and the results obtained by students speak for themselves."

Throughout the duration of the programme, students will get free Doncaster Rovers kit, free selected match day tickets, experience of coaching and many more benefits.

The Doncaster Rovers Foundation Football Academy who compete in the English Colleges Football Association League runs alongside students’ main academic subjects enabling those with a passion for football to develop their skills and represent Doncaster Rovers.

There are no course fees for any of our programmes, however there are entry requirements for some courses.  Places are limited for courses starting in September and people interested in applying are urged to hurry to make the most of this fantastic opportunity.
