The Wildcats Sport and Education Academy opened its doors for the first ever time last Thursday.
Fourteen students enrolled on the two-year BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, a qualification that will set them on their way to a career in the sports industry.
Director of Education Mark Winder and Sport and Education officer Darren Rogers were on hand to greet the students, give them a further overview of the course and what they can expect from an exciting two years ahead.
The course is accredited by the Rugby Football League, RL Cares and Learn Direct, and will see the young people aged between 16 and 18 leave with a qualification the equivalent of three A Levels and provided with unrivalled access to industry professionals including the likes of head coach Richard Agar.
There will also be the opportunity to gain work experience, utilising the Wakefield Community Trust links with local school’s to put what they’re learning into practice.
There’s still time to sign up for the course, so if you’re aged 16-18 and looking for a qualification to get you ahead of the rest in achieving your dream job then what are you waiting for?
