Fancy representing Blackburn Rovers whilst enjoying a great sixth form education? Come along to next week's FA Youth Cup tie to find out how!
Blackburn Rovers Community Trust are busily recruiting students for the new 2017/18 academic year intake, offering Level 1 and 3 qualifications in the inspirational Ewood Park setting through our BTEC in Sport.
Invite letters are currently going out to high school pupils who have expressed an interest in enrolling for our September 2017 start, but those who still want to know more can learn the key details at an open evening being held prior to next Wednesday's home FA Youth Cup 4th Round clash with Aston Villa.
From 5.30pm to 6.30pm, the classroom facilities on the ground floor of the Darwen End will be open to potential recruits and their parents and guardians to find out how you can combine sports-themed qualifications and experience with the chance to represent your club in either 11-a-side football or the EFL Trust Futsal Development League.
The open evening will include a tour of the excellent education facilities at Ewood Park, as well as presentations from our course leaders to explain how the BTEC programme can open up exciting career paths or the chance to progress onto university degree courses.
Attendees will also receive a free ticket to the FA Youth Cup tie (kick-off 7pm) on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to availability, so that you can get a taste of the pride that fellow young players feel when pulling on the famous jersey!
