Sporting chances for Wisbech students


Students at a Wisbech school who have a passion for sport will benefit from a new partnership with the College of West Anglia (CWA).

From September this year the CWA sport and leisure department will be working with the Thomas Clarkson Community College (TCCC) to provide sports courses for sixth-formers.
Anyone aged 16 to 18 in Fenland wanting to progress further in sport, in anything from coaching and training to sport development and physiotherapy, can now get the best of starts with the joint working partnership.

The college will bring its flagship course, The National Pathway to Sport level 3 programme (equivalent to three A-levels) to TCCC where learners can study a range of disciplines including sports nutrition, coaching, sports psychology, training and fitness.
	
Students will also have the chance to apply for the CWA sports academies, including football, rugby and basketball where, if successful, they will receive coaching from a highly-qualified team.

“I am delighted to be working with TCCC having attended school there myself. This project is very exciting and I am looking forward to bringing the outstanding sports provision we have developed at the CWA to Fenland,” said Tommy Goode, Programme Manager Sport and Leisure who launched the new provision on Monday, March 29.
