THE Chorley FC BTEC Education Programme takes young people on a two-year journey of elite training, outstanding education and high quality outcomes.
LLS Online, an award-winning organisation that specialises in post-16 education, is supporting the Magpies in offering young people access to the Chorley FC Football Pathway, university courses, USA scholarships and global coaching opportunities.
While on the programme students can study a BTEC Level-3 Extended Diploma in Sport, gain significant work experience and open up a professional network for future employment. Additionally, course participants can study A-Levels as a part of the school sixth form provision. All education facilities are provided by Thornleigh Salesian College in Bolton.
In support of the education is an elite football programme, led by UEFA Pro Licence coaching badge holder Andy Preece, whereby the students train three times a week and play competitive fixtures in the National League Under-19 Alliance every Wednesday afternoon (with some home games played at Victory Park).
