Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport in partnership with Portsmouth Football Club
Whether you’re interested in playing, coaching, teaching or a career in sport science, take your first step into these exciting professions with our range of sport courses. Working with partnership with Pompey in the Community we have developed the perfect course for aspiring footballers.
In 2019, Highbury College teamed up with Pompey in the Community (PitC) to offer an exciting Level 3 Diploma in Sport.
The two-year course is suitable for male and female students (over 16) who are keen to develop an insight into opportunities within the sports industry.
Based at the Pompey Study Centre – with elements at Fratton Park and Highbury College – students use purpose-built classrooms and facilities, creating a perfect learning environment in which to thrive. Alongside their academic studies, students train and play on a weekly basis, representing Pompey against other professional clubs in competitive fixtures – another unique aspect of the course.
National and international trips are also an integral part, with PitC providing the chance to visit world famous stadia and high-profile organisations. Students train and play abroad each year, with recent tours taking place in the Netherlands and USA. They are optional, but provide a chance to learn and engage.
