What is on offer...

Traineeship Engagement

The structure of the Traineeship Engagement course is the perfect balance between classroom-based learning and practical activities.

The Traineeship Engagement course provides young people with the advice, techniques, and experience to become work-ready or progress into further education.

The Foundation focus on developing soft skills within a flexible environment to help unlock each student’s potential and place no pressure on achieving qualifications.

BTEC Level One in Sport

The Traineeship Level 1 course allows young people aged 16-19 to combine their studies with practical sessions. The course is a natural progression for students completing the Traineeship Engagement course.

The course has a clear work-related focus, covering both the knowledge and practical skills required to work within the sport and leisure sector.

Units include how the body works, planning a fitness programme, assisting coaching, and job opportunities in sport. As the official charity of Cardiff City Football Club, they're able to offer fantastic work experience opportunities and sector-related work placements, both within Cardiff City FC Foundation and the vast departments of Cardiff City Football Club.

The Foundation is proud to be able to offer students a relaxed atmosphere to learn and the opportunity to transfer what they’ve learned in the classroom through structured, practical training sessions.

Students will work to complete a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sport, which is an academic equivalent to 4 GCSEs. They provide fantastic progression opportunities for those learners with aspirations to study a BTEC Level 3, as well as providing the knowledge and skills needed for employment or apprenticeships.

BTEC Level Three Extended Diploma in Sport
