Sunderland College & Durham County FA

School leavers are being offered the chance to take the first steps towards a career in sports coaching with Durham County FA and Sunderland College.

The college’s new 'Coaching Academy', which starts in September 2021, offers a combination of qualifications alongside industry experience to give students the skills & knowledge they need to progress straight into the sports industry or on to higher education. Over the two-year course, based at Sunderland College’s state-of-the-art Sports Academy at Bede Campus, they will gain additional coaching qualifications including safeguarding and first aid, as well as take part in workshops, masterclasses and placements with some of the country’s leading coaches, sports clubs and organisations.

An Open Event is taking place on Thursday 3rd June, 9.30-12.30 at Durham County Football Association for prospective students to find out more about the Level 3 Sports Coaching BTEC and to meet some of the delivery team. This event will include both theory and practical, giving students a real insight into the exciting two year course at Sunderland College.

We would encourage and welcome any students who have aspirations to study to become a Sports Coach or PE Teacher to attend this event.
