This September, we launch the Barkingside Community Academy Study Programme, in partnership with Elite Pathways, at our home ground.

The knowledge, understanding and skills learned in a Sports Study Programme aid progression to further study and will prepare you to enter the workplace.

The qualifications are popular and effective because they enable you to take responsibility for your own learning and develop skills, essential for the workplace.





Applicants can focus on Football, Martial Arts or a combination of the two. The course combines practical sessions and classroom-based learning. It will run over 3 days a week for a period of one year at the end of which, you can choose to progress to level 3 in year 2, provided you have passed all the units.

​During your programme, you will have the opportunity to learn about a selection of subjects including anatomy and physiology, practical sport, sports coaching, fitness testing and training, sports psychology and other areas related to the sports industry. You will also gain skills in teamwork, communication, leadership, fitness, resilience, honesty, enthusiasm, commitment, discipline and respect as well as improving confidence.

If you are interested in pursuing a career in sports, we will be holding several open days in the next few months. These will give a taster of what you can learn, your commitments to the courses and your potential outcomes.
