The Wildcats are offering young people aged 16-18 an exciting opportunity to earn both qualifications and gain valuable work experience within Wakefield’s only professional sports club.

The Wildcats are launching a Sport & Education Academy from September.

For the first time this September, the Wildcats will offer the opportunity to study for a BTEC National Diploma in Sports Performance and Excellence whilst also allowing the chance to develop as a sportsperson.

The Wildcats Sport & Education Academy will provide a first class education to give young people the qualifications to get into University, working with education partners to deliver a truly unique learning experience that will put you in the heart of a professional sports club on a daily basis.

With unparalleled access to experts in the sports industry including coaches and guest lecturers, the Wildcats Sports & Education Academy is the perfect place to take the next step towards a career in sport.

Work experience is more valuable than ever to employers, and by locating yourself in an elite sports environment, you’re perfectly placed to start building your CV straight away and putting you ahead of the rest on the way to your dream job in one of the most competitive industries.

The Wildcats Sport and Education Academy is the next step on the road to a career working in sport.

Not only will you study for a qualification that is equivalent to three A-Levels, but there’s the chance to train and compete within a professional sports club to give you a fully rounded experience.
