THE NEXT STEP

PROGRESSION ROUTES

There are many progression routes available for Academy learners at the end of their BTEC L3 Extended Diploma.  The decision was made when we were discussing the set up of the Academy, that it was important to give options to 18 year olds and not just discard them once they had done their BTEC.  The whole vision of the Long Eaton United Community FC is to give options and opportunities to 16-21 year olds.

These are some options open to our youngsters:

  • US Scholarship programmes - we have contacts at US universities and have sent many learners on scholarship programmes

  • UK Universities - on completion of the BTEC L3 Extended Diploma enough UCAS points should have be earned to apply for University courses.

  • Apprenticeships - we have had a number of learners go on to the PESS framework and also the Sport's Development framework

  • Coaching and Teaching Careers - we have had success with learners who are now fully qualified BTEC tutors.
