Sport incentive for Blackburn students

First published in Blackburn

STUDENTS at Blackburn College are being given the chance to visit some of the world’s most prestigious sporting events.

Those on the BTEC Level 3 sport qualification will be offered the opportunity to attend events including the World athletics championships, the Rugby World Cup and a stage of the Tour de France, as part of the college’s commitment to providing the best possible learning environment.

They will also have access to a gym, exercise studio and rooftop football pitch after the college secured a partnership with Blackburn Youth Zone. Leadership training in South Africa will also be on offer.

Alastair Mollon, head of sport at Blackburn College, said: “These trips are once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and they are all about raising our students’ aspirations and inspiring them that nothing is out of reach. They are also a great way to inject some focus and enthusiasm in to their courses.

“The sport course is perfect for learners who have a passion for sport and want to gain qualifications that will help them find employment.

“If you have a genuine passion for sport and would like to find out more then we’d love to hear from you.”
