Preston North End Community and Education Trust run a variety of education programmes and it is set to highlight these this week.
Throughout the week we will have examples of past case studies along with thoughts from teachers and students who have engaged on our range of education programmes.
Focusing on a different programme each day of the week, Monday will see details of the PL Primary Stars programme promoted, including past case studies, player visits and more.
The programme uses cross-curricular learning combined with the power and appeal of football to inspire children.
Maths and literacy concepts are incorporated into children’s PE lessons, aiding the learning and development of the pupils as well as the teacher’s delivery of the subject.
Attentions will turn to the Secondary School Provision programme on Tuesday.
The Secondary School Provision programme launched at the start of the academic year and targets disengaged year 10 and 11 students by offering them the chance to work towards achieving their qualifications in a sporting environment. Read more here.
The post-16 education programme will be the subject of attention on Wednesday with the Trust recruiting for new students for September 2020.
Students can study a Gateway Level 2 Diploma in Sport and Active Leisure, a one-year course, the starting point of the post-16 education pathway.
Upon completion of the Level 2 course, there is the Level 3 qualification, an OCR Technical Diploma in Sport, which is the equivalent of three A Level qualifications.
On both courses, students will have the opportunity to represent Preston North End Community and Education Trust by playing in the EFL Community and Education Alliance football league against other sports colleges, and students will study modules around multiple disciplines of sport.
From there, students are then able to move onto studying a foundation degree in Community Football Coaching, in conjunction with the University of South Wales and the EFL Trust, and that will be our focus on Thursday.

Finally, on Friday, we will conclude our celebrations of all things education at the club’s official community department with an insight into how our education programmes are continuing to operate despite the current Coronavirus crisis.
