Open day confirmed for Wednesday 7 November.

The Leeds United Foundation will be holding an open day for their BTEC Education Programme on Wednesday 7 November.

This will be the first of a series of open days that will be held throughout the 2018/19 academic year at Elland Road for their BTEC sport courses (the exact location will be confirmed closer to the date).

It is the perfect opportunity for individuals who aspire to have an education in sport. In recent years the courses have proved incredibly popular with youngsters in Leeds with a number of them going on to further education in sport and some progressing onto the club’s official charity’s prestigious foundation degree.

The BTEC Education Programme can also help create opportunities for employment within Leeds United Foundation – this could be as a coach for one of the many diverse and inclusive programmes being delivered by the charity.

The courses currently on offer are; BTEC Level 1 Diploma in Sport, BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sport and BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport and Excellence.

All Year 11 students that are interested in having a career in the sports industry are welcome to attend the open day being held at the stadium which will go into more detail on each course - there will be another three held throughout the next year. The open day is from 4.30pm to 5.30pm on Wednesday 7 November.

The Foundation currently has a 100% pass rate for their students and over the last three years 70% of students have progressed to Higher Education including onto the foundation degree.

There are two ways for students to apply, either through or you can contact Annette.Sheard@leedsunited with your name, DOB, contact details and predicted grades.

For more information on the courses available please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Leeds United Foundation Administration Assistant Annette Sheard (contact above).
