Peterborough United Sports Scholarship Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport at Nene Park Academy
Course description

The Peterborough United Sports Scholarship combines Football and Futsal along with a BTEC Level 3 in Sport. Unique to this course, the fixtures will be played against both Premier League and Football League clubs with similar programmes and fixtures will be held at fantastic venues such as first team training grounds, St George’s Park and the Birmingham International Futsal Arena. This is a great course for anyone with a passion for Football who wants to challenge themselves in a new environment.
You will gain a highly recognised qualification in Sport which you can use towards application for University or trying to enter the working world of Sport. The course also gives the opportunity to attain coaching qualifications and/or awards in Football and Futsal providing you with a unique qualification to further enhance your knowledge and understanding of Football and Futsal. In addition you can gain the NCS: National Citizenship Service award, which is a government recognised qualification. This will also support your application for university and help to make your CV stand out.
Course content
Pupils will study an Edexcel BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport which builds on students’ experience from Key Stage 4 and GCSE, enhancing knowledge and increasing understanding of the factors that affect performance and participation in sport.
This qualification gives students the opportunity to develop their understanding of the world of sport looking at units of Fitness Training and Testing, anatomy and physiology along with many other areas of the world of sport.
Alternatively, those who have the entry requirements can choose to study 3 A Levels instead of the BTEC, or one A Level in addition to it. Availability of this will be discussed on an individual basis.

As part of the programme you will represent Peterborough United in both the EFL South East Division and the EFL Midlands National League in which you will compete against teams such as Chelsea, Cardiff, Southampton, Norwich amongst others. Both sets of fixtures are played in many fantastic venues and arenas such first team training grounds, St Georges Park and the Birmingham International Futsal Arena. The past couple of seasons have been very successful for both the boys and girls teams having won multiple National Leagues and Division titles.
The girls compete in the CEFA Womens Central league with match days falling on Wednesdays.
Your timetable includes Football training, Futsal training, gym sessions and HUDL match analysis sessions alongside your BTEC lessons. In addition to these regular sessions, both boys and girls have team bonding sessions throughout the season, such as attending first team fixtures, stadium tours, footgolf and trips to theme parks.
