This year, the Burnley College Elite Athlete programme has stepped up a gear, helping passionate athletes study and train throughout College.
on the programme are students who have proven that they are deeply passionate about their sport and are looking to seriously pursue a career within it.
Offering bespoke training programmes and individual study timetables tailored around each student's training schedule
, it's a perfect option for young people who want to continue to learn and gain their A Levels or other qualifications while they train for their dream sporting career.
The Elite Athlete programme also offers professional level support from sports rehabilitation and performance analysis to warm weather training and nutritional guidelines. Not only this but students also benefit from financial support packages to aid them with competition entry fees, essential kit and personal training and marketing packages to help boost their reputation and guide them on making connections within their sporting worlds.
One Elite Athlete who has already been benefitting from the scheme is sixth form student Matthew Shaw
who is combining study for his A Levels with training to become a professional Rugby player.
The qualifications on offer from the programme are suited to fit with the high pressures of training but will continue to be driven by the outstanding education and support available to all Burnley College Sixth Form Centre
