School Leaver? You Could Be Representing PNE This Year!

24 August 2016

The Preston North End Community and Education Trust have a limited amount of places available for September's intake of students.

If you're one of many school leavers who will be receiving their GCSE results tomorrow morning and are unsure on your next career step, the education programme at Preston North End could be the next step you're looking for!

Our unique and bespoke programmes allow students access to exclusive and practical work-based experience that only a professional football club can offer; this is combined with training in first class facilites whilst representing Preston North End at regional and national level.

Off the pitch, students will study classroom based modules tailored to individuals who are interested in progressing in the sport and leisure industry.

We're offering level two and level three extended diplomas which are equivalent to three A Levels, providing students the opportunity to progress into the sport and leisure industry.

It was only last year where students on the programme claimed silverware representing the Lilywhites in the EFL national Futsal finals (pictured above), and a member of that victorius team, Aaron Pursell spoke to the club website about the benefits he's reaped since attending the course.

"It's given me so much more confidence," stated the PNE student on being on the education programme at Preston North End.

"It's given me different skills inside and outside of the classroom, such as playing futsal and being able to communicate better in front of people.

"As a Preston North End fan myself, it's the little things like wearing the badge which is quite special and it feels good to walk around in Preston kit."

So if like Aaron, you're interested in prolonging your studies on and off the pitch, there's still availability to sign up ahead of September's intake.
